AYES partners with CCISD’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) department to provide students in the Automotive Technology program a glimpse into day-to-day operations in an automotive facility, while shadowing an experienced lead mentor and learning alongside industry professionals.
“The Automotive Technology CTE program helps students discover their passion and develop their skills to enter a highly-trained workforce almost immediately after leaving CCISD,” said JT Buford, CTE Program Manager. “We are grateful for the support and long-term partnerships in place with AYES and our automotive industry partners that provide valuable real-world experiences for our students,” he said.
Additionally, CCISD congratulates the five graduating seniors who celebrated the completion of the AYES program with successful internships at automotive repair facilities in the area.
Below are the students who completed the internship program and are set to graduate this month:
Nicholas Johnson, Clear Brook High School, Norman Frede Chevrolet
Sam Greer, Clear Springs High School, Discount Tire Friendswood
Zachary Brunner, Clear Springs High School, Preferred Home Services
Nathan Deschner, Clear Springs High School, McRee Ford

“The knowledge that CCISD Automotive Technology instructor, Mr. Hedger, imparts on students is second to none,” said Buford. “He positions his students to succeed in any shop bay as well as in their automotive post-secondary education.”
