Mitchell 1 Recognizes Crystal Rogers as its Automotive Technology Outstanding Student Scholarship Winner

Rogers plans to pursue a master’s ­degree in automotive engineering.

Mitchell 1 announced Crystal Rogers, from Gray Court, SC, has been named the Automotive Technology Outstanding Student Scholarship winner for outstanding achievement in automotive technology scholastics.

During an awards ceremony at the North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT) Conference held recently at Seminole State College of Florida in Sanford, FL, Rogers was presented with a check for $2,500, along with a recognition certificate courtesy of Mitchell 1.

By the time she graduated from Laurens District 55 High School in Laurens, SC, Rogers was a four-year automotive student in a three-year course of study. Not only did she choose to stay an “extra” year, but she also received straight A’s in the program.

She will attend Tri-County Technical College in its bridge program and major in mechanical engineering. She plans to transfer to Clemson University in her sophomore year to continue her education.

Upon receiving her bachelor’s degree, Rogers would like to pursue a master’s ­degree in automotive engineering.   

“One of the reasons that I chose this career path is that I simply love being around cars,” said Rogers. “Having the opportunity to take automotive classes in high school has helped me realize that cars are my true passion, and to be able to work with cars and design my own is simply the best career possible in my opinion.”
