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.
