Toronto Ontario -- July 31, 2019 - A dedicated auto tech student was given a hefty scholarship and the title of 'Automotive Technology Outstanding Student' at the most recent Mitchell 1 conference hosted in Calgary, Alberta.
From July 15-18, collision repair software provider Mitchell 1 hosted their 46th annual North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT) in the Southern Alberta Insitute of Technology to celebrate automotive teachers and students across North America.
It was there that they hosted four full days of seminars, training blocks, and sponsor sessions and in between, made time to acknowledge future industry leaders.
“Mitchell 1 is proud to recognize Jackson Dietrich for his outstanding achievement and dedication to pursuing educational excellence in the automotive technology field,” announced Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director of Mitchell 1.
Jackson Dietrich is a recent high school graduate and auto repair whiz.
Named Mitchell 1's 'Automotive Technology Outstanding Student', Dietrich received a $2500 scholarship as well as a $500 cheque.
And his reward was well deserved.
While in high school, it was reported that Dietrich was part of a successful auto club and Dietrich served as an executive board member. On top of that, Dietrich also worked as an automotive technician at a local service center and achieved ASE Student Certification while maintaining an impressive GPA.
“With his drive and enthusiasm for auto diagnostics and repair, we know he will one day accomplish his dreams,” stated DiVerde.
