A high school program is helping high school students get into the auto industry.
Zully Roman says she’s had a love for cars since she was 3-years old.
“I’m like a kid in a toy factory right now,” said the McKee High School senior.
Auto technicans from Dana Ford Lincoln showed Roman and her classmates around the service department Monday. The dealership held a special open house for students in McKee High School’s Career and Technical Education program. In addition to getting their high school diploma, the students earn vocational certificates.
“You want to be able to give the students the ability to go to college if they want and to go into a career if they want. The best part about it is that they have these options when they graduate,” said the program’s assistant principal.
