Butler Community College Auto Tech and Collision Repair are in the Top 20 for School of the Year.

School of the Year

Butler’s AutoTech and Collision Repair programs have been selected by Tomorrow’s Technician for the Chicago Pneumatic award. There will be one national winner and three region winners selected for the Top School of the Year.

The winner will receive $10,000 in tools, gain nationwide recognition in Tomorrow’s Technician magazine, and receive a School of the Year plaque, flag and shop banners, and apparel. The regional winners will receive $5000 in tools. In the Northwest region we are among four other schools selected: Arapohoe Community College, Littleton, CO – College of Eastern Utah, Price, UT – Ramona High School, Ramona, CAButler Community College, El Dorado, KS – Smoky Hill High School, Smoky Hill, CO

I believe it would be awesome to win the national Top School of the Year Award. The students work hard at Butler and I believe they deserve that honor. We are working to get the additional information together so we can send it in. We will hear the results in April.

The Real Deal

One of the questions on the questionnaire they sent us is, “what is our favorite car television/cable show?” After asking the students, there is one show that surfaced, which is Overhaulin’. This falls right into the next question, which is, “who is your favorite custom car/hot rod designer?” That would obviously be Chip Foose. There were a few other names mentioned, but I think everyone would agree that Foose is the “Real Deal.”

I had the opportunity to check out several of the cars that Foose has built and I have met Chip. I have no doubt in my mind that Foose is the most talented person in the automotive world. So Foose, you’re the man in our books.

We’ll keep you updated on this event. April seems like a long wait to hear the results, but it will be here before we know it.
