College Uses Record-Setting Car Show to Recruit Future Auto Experts

NTV article from February 24, 2014

An annual car show drew a record-setting crowd to Grand Island Saturday. As the Tri–City Street Rods Auto Exhibition wrapped up Sunday, the crowds kept coming.

But, experts say there are fewer and fewer people to work on those vehicles.

That's why one college took to the show to recruit.

Southeast Community College students showed off their skills, taking apart and reassembling an engine in less than 15 minutes.

It's a demonstration their instructor hopes will bring more students into the automotive field.

"There's just more jobs than we can fill," said Kevin Uhler.
