From Katie Collins’ article on The News Eagle website:

History has a tendency of repeating itself for Wallenpaupack automotive students, who work hard. Within the last 15 years, young automotive technicians from Wallenpaupack Area High School have placed first six times, and in the top three 11 of the 15 years they competed in the Pennsylvania Automotive Association competition in Hershey. And within the past three years, each team has placed first at the state competition.

A key to the students’ success each year, Automotive Teacher Dr. Mark Watson says is a commitment to hard work. That, he stresses to his students, and both seniors Ben Surplice and Theo Zumpone agree with his philosophy, and as a result of their own efforts, the students will be traveling to New York City to compete in the National Automotive Technology Competition at the Javits Center, March 28 after placing first in the PA Auto Competition in February.

Out of 101 students across the state of Pennsylvania, both Surplice and Zumpone received the highest scores on a test that determines who competed in the PA Auto Competition.
