McCollum AutoTech students advance to state competition
Posted on 02/08/2018

A total of eight McCollum High School Automotive and Technology students recently participated in the SkillsUSA Texas District 11 Leadership and Skills Conference. The students participated in the Job Exhibit competition and advanced to state.

As part of the competition, there was a five person engine team that completely disassembled, cleaned, photographed, documented and reassembled an automotive engine. Once complete, the students put their engine on display with a progress binder.

Three individual students entered their brake caliper in the Automotive Brake Component competition. They disassembled, cleaned, sand blasted, honed, photographed, documented and reassembled an automotive brake caliper assembly with new seals. Once complete, they put their caliper on display with a progress binder.

“The students had a great time and put a lot of effort in,” McCollum Automotive Instructor Mark Emmons said. “Their attitude and behavior was the best anyone would have asked for.”

The five person team is composed of Stephen Saenz, Devin Hernandez, Oscar Gonzales, Enrique Castillo III and Esteban Montoya. The three individual students are Fernando Ortiz, Jared Villarreal and Josh Rodriguez.

Way to go, McCollum Cowboys! Good luck in the state competition!
