Mitchell 1 awarded its first Automotive Technology Outstanding Student Scholarship at the recent North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT) Education Foundation annual conference held in Spokane, WA.

Trevor Stine, a student at the Automotive Training Center (ATC) in Exton, PA, received the $2,500 annual scholarship from Mitchell 1 in recognition of his outstanding achievements in automotive technology/auto repair scholastics. Stine, who holds a 3.94 GPA with a perfect attendance record, has been an ATC student since June 2004.

“We are thrilled to support Trevor in his scholastic endeavors in automotive education,” said Nick DiVerde, Mitchell 1 director of marketing. "He is a very worthy recipient of the Mitchell 1 Automotive Technology Outstanding Student Scholarship."

Stine graduated from St. Pius X High School in Pottstown, PA, and immediately enrolled in ATC. The 1-1/2-year curriculum includes nearly 2,000 hours of classroom and hands-on experience in a range of subjects from engine diagnostics to electrical systems to brakes to computer diagnostics. Since his enrollment, he has also become a charter member of the center’s SkillsUSA chapter, a national organization that serves high school and college students and professional members enrolled in training programs in technical, skilled and service occupations. His membership in SkillsUSA allowed him to participate in written tests and compete locally and in state automotive diagnostic troubleshooting competitions. As a freshman, Stine won second place in the state competition, competing against 15 others.
