The Copper Country Intermediate School District in Hancock, MI, is holding an Auto Tech Non-Traditional Automotive Technology Career Day.
From Graham Jaehnig’s article on The Daily Mining Gazette website:
The Copper Country Intermediate School District’s Auto Tech Non-Traditional Automotive Technology Career Day is intended to encourage female students to consider automotive technology as a career. The non-traditional career day is open only to female high school students. Joe Galetto, career prep coordinator at the Auto Tech Center, said he is hoping to see more women consider the field.
“Our intent is to make it an annual thing. We’re not in it for one or two years. I think you got to build it so we’re looking at ‘okay, this is our second year, so hopefully, we’ll get 10 more students than we had last year, so that’ll have an impact. If we can continue it, it’ll grow.”
Galetto said during the 2014-15 school year, there were two female students enrolled in the Auto Tech program. This year there are four. He hopes that this year’s career day will have an impact on at least a couple of students who attend.
