Everything has changed when it comes to schools, as students and parents hope the pandemic won’t interrupt their progress.

The continuing conversation about virtual off-campus learning versus in-class instruction is polarizing, leaving teachers and administrators no choice but to roll with the punches.

 

The Tri-Valley Regional Occupational Program at Livermore High School in Livermore, CA, is in the same boat as every other educational institution on the planet, but recently they heard good news when they found out they received the Selwyn Joffe Award from the California Aftermarket Warehouse Association (CAWA.)

 

As a result, they now have a new scan tool---a Bosch Encore Deluxe Kit---to use in both their auto body repair and automotive technology classes.

 

 Representing the automotive parts Industry, CAWA provides money, tools or equipment to high school teachers to support their automotive programs every year.

 

"CAWA is proud to assist these automotive high school teachers, in part, to assure their programs remain viable and well-resourced for the benefit of their students and our industry,” said CAWA President and CEO Rodney Pierini.

 

 Ed Woodworth, who teaches auto technology at Tri-Valley ROP, recently celebrated his 15th year at Livermore High School. He gained industry experience working at a local Ford dealership for 11 years as a tech, and his father was also an auto tech teacher, so it’s not a job, it’s a calling.

 

Woodworth's department won the award, but he is more than happy to share the scanner with the school’s collision repair department.
