Shen’s Vincent Degni will represent Capital Region BOCES Career and Technical School (CTE) in the National Automotive Technology Competition at the Javits Center in New York City April 17-19.
The annual competition is a chance for students to show their knowledge of automotive computer diagnostics, engines, technology and more. In preparation for the competition, the CTE students are working with representatives of Destination Kia, as well as CTE faculty, to get a feel for specific problems they may have to solve during the competition.
The national competition is billed as “a test of skill, a measure of knowledge and a race against the clock all rolled into one.”
“It’s a real opportunity to compete against our peers and test our abilities,” said Degni. He plans to enter the United States Coast Guard after graduation.
