Tallahassee High School Gets Auto Tech Lab

The school cut the ribbon on a new Cougar automotive tech studies lab Monday morning.

Local auto dealers have pledged their support to the state of the art facility, agreeing to send specialists, offer internships and provide professional speakers in the field.

The lab puts students on the inside track to an automotive career.

Clayton Scott, a student at Godby High School, says, "It will help me where I can fix my own truck. I can work on it myself. It's teaching me good values and leadership qualities."

Sixty students are enrolled in the class. Funding for the lab was made possible by the half penny sales tax voters approved in 2002.
