SGTC Motorsports Vehicle Technology advisory committee meets
The South Georgia Technical College Motorsports Vehicle Technology advisory committee met recently in the Energy and Transportation Center building on the college’s Americus campus to discuss several aspects of the Motorsports industry.
The purpose of the advisory committee is to assist South Georgia Technical College faculty and staff in continuous quality improvement of the Motorsports Vehicle Technology program. SGTC Motorsports Vehicle Technology Instructor Kevin Beaver provided the committee with updates and information about program changes, enrollment, community activities, and student news. The committee also reviewed the program needs for the upcoming year.
The advisory committee members provide information to SGTC faculty and staff about suggested improvements in curriculum, new training opportunities that are available in the motorsports field, new technology, employment/internship opportunities available for students, and salary levels students may anticipate upon graduation.
Members present at the advisory committee meeting included Ron Peacock, Outside Sales for NAPA Auto Parts; John Werling of Advance Auto Parts; John Beaver, owner of Beaver Racing Engines; and Hal Fowler of Rottler Machines. SGTC Academic Dean David Finley and April Hilliard, Vice President of Academic Affairs Administrative Assistant, was also present for the meeting.
The advisory committee is a crucial link that provides an avenue for South Georgia Technical College instructors to learn about changing conditions or technology in the workplace that can then be passed along to students that will enable them to be fully prepared upon graduation.
