Top Four Regional Finalists Announced for the 2011 School of the Year Contest

A record-setting 301 recommendation e-mails were received during the School of the Year promotion.

Akron, OH — Tomorrow’s Technician and WIX Filters have named the four regional finalists for the 2011 School of the Year.

The four finalists were chosen from the Top 20 schools named earlier this year. The regional finalists were picked following a review of their school’s profile binder that was assembled by instructors, principals, department chairs and students all touting their automotive training programs.

School of the Year officials said this year’s program was very successful, and that it was extremely difficult to narrow down the finalists from such a fine crop of applicants.

A record-setting 301 recommendation e-mails were received during the School of the Year promotion, nominating 95 various automotive technical, secondary and high school programs in the U.S. 

The region finalists are:

Region One: Arapahoe Community College, Littleton, CO;

• Region Two: Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, Elizabethtown, KY;

• Region Three: South Seattle Community College, Seattle, WA; and

• Region Four: Sinclair Community College, Dayton, OH.

The 2011 School of the Year winner will be chosen from these four finalists. That school will be featured in the May issue of Tomorrow’s Technician magazine.
