JATC South Students Participate in Roundtable Focusing on Technical Careers

Picture of Diesel Tech studentsSome JATC South Diesel Tech students had a unique opportunity to meet with Senator Mitt Romney recently as part of a Diesel Roundtable discussion focusing on technical careers and workforce development.

They were able to talk to Senator Romney about their experiences in the Diesel Tech program and discussed how to make the trades, specifically those in diesel and transportation, more appealing to high school students. Romney wants to make sure students understand options they have in pursuing technical careers in Utah.

While meeting with the senator, the students also participated in a job shadow on the shop floor at Kenworth Sales.

We are proud of all the students who participated in the roundtable and wish them the very best in their pursuit of a career in the Diesel Tech industry.
