    Auto Tech

    Thanks to the Mark Mason family who own the Lugoff Automotive Group. They have agreed to provide paid internships for a number of our second and third level automotive technology students who met hiring criteria at the group's local dealerships which include Lugoff Toyota, Lugoff Ford and Carolina Chrysler Dodge. As of now, four students are participating in these paid internships, which include part-time work after school hours and on Saturdays. Congratulations to Trent Johnson and Brandon Harris, who are at Lugoff Ford, Hunter Horton who is at Lugoff Toyota and Vance Outlaw who is at Carolina Chrysler Dodge. We are hopeful that later in the school year additional students will qualify as positions become available. Larry Watkins is the program instructor.

    Teen Drinking

    Community Awareness 

    The student body at ATEC was surveyed by the Health Occupations Students of America as part of their Community Awareness project. Teen Drinking was a top concern for the students.On Thursday, March 3, 2016 Tina Griggs and Carlo Harris from ALPHA Behavioral Health Center came to ATEC for a  presentation on Teen Drinking. They included the consequences for a minor that possesses, buys or consumes alcohol in the presentation. Drunk goggles were also used to demonstrate how alcohol affects co-ordination and balance.

    Community Awareness

    To address stress Lisa Riente from Blue Dog Yoga in Camden came to ATEC and taught the students stress relieving breathing techniques and Hatha yoga poses. Proper breathing and relaxation techniques have proven to slow the heart rate, clear the mind and relieve stress. Another concept she presented to the students was .b (dot b).   This is a way for teens to become mindful and to stop, breath, think, then react to avoid being impulsive and making dangerous decisions.

    "Tech Talks"

    Henry Powers of Powers and Gregory Heating & Air, ​an ATEC alumni​ and now a successful local business owner, ​conducted ​our first Tech Talk session with a group of students on March 1. Tech Talks was launched to help students make real life connections between what is learned in the classroom and how it transfers to a job site. Preparing students by teaching them technical ​and ​employability skills makes them more marketable in a competitive work force. ATEC ​plans to invite​ different business leaders each month to speak to ​students in an informal Q & A type discussion. If you would like to donate your time and expertise please contact Kim Morgan at 425-8982 for further information.
