Dawson Garcia (Muhlenberg High) and Hector Vega (Reading High) will represent RMCTC at the Greater Philadelphia Automotive Technology Competition on February 24.

As part of their preparation for the contest, they visited Penske Buick to get some valuable real-world experience. Under the guidance of Shop Foreman Justin Crosby, they worked through the complete list of items routinely checked by Penske mechanics while preparing new vehicles for purchase.

Best of luck to Hector and Dawson as they compete for bragging rights, valuable prizes, and scholarships!
