Kody Pickering of Sterling, CO, was selected the “NAPA Student of the Month” by the Northeastern Junior College’s automotive technology department.
Pickering, an auto tech freshman, was selected for the award based on his academic performance in both the classroom and the lab where the hands-on work is being done as part of his training.
The student award at the auto college has been sponsored by NAPA Auto and Truck Parts in Sterling for the past two decades.
Students are presented a plaque and a gift certificate to the store. The award is given monthly August through May, and is alternated among the students in the college’s auto tech program, the diesel technology program and the secondary auto tech program.
