Mingo Central High School in Delbarton, WV, announced this past week on its Facebook page that the automotive shop in the Career and Technical Education portion of the school is now certified as an official West Virginia vehicle inspection station.
MCHS Assistant Principal Marcella Charles-Casto said she has wanted to see this accomplished since the school opened in 2011, and commended automotive instructor Chris Roberson, as he was able to get it done in just a few months.
“We are just beginning this huge endeavor. Sometime in the near future we will publicize when we are ready to open our safety inspections to the public,” Charles-Casto said.
“We are not there yet, but it is coming! When this happens, our patrons will call a specified number and schedule an appointment. We are so excited to share this news!”
Roberson completed the first vehicle inspection under the new license Feb. 21.
The next step will be to certify CTE students who turn 18 prior to graduation.
