South Doyle HS Collision Repair Students to Present KCS Security with Vehicle

Students enrolled in Mr. Rod McMahan’s Advanced Collision Repair course at South Doyle High School will present a 2014 Chevrolet Impala to the Knox County Schools Security Department on Monday, May 16, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.

The Impala to be presented was involved in a front end collision, and with just 4,470 miles on the odometer, was declared totaled. The South Doyle High School students, applying content learned in a classroom, completed repairs to the vehicle in order to get it certified by stringent Insurance Institute criteria.

The Career and Technical Education program is key to ensuring that students understand the importance of innovation and obtain the skills employers in high skill, high demand, high wage career fields need in the 21st century workforce.

“The completion of the Impala Project is just one example of how Career and Technical Education in the Knox County Schools continues to provide rigorous technical content while meeting high 21st century demands,” said Don Lawson, Director of Career, Technical and Adult Education for the Knox County Schools. “Programs like this provide strong evidence that we are utilizing personalized instruction to meet the individual needs of all Knox County students.”

The presentation will take place at South Doyle High School (2020 Tipton Station Road).
