ANKENY, Iowa — Perry High School seniors Erick Funez and Gage Laws were among 23 future DMACC students who recently participated in the second annual DMACC Automotive Signing Day, a recognition of their joining the award-winning DMACC Automotive Technology Programs in fall 2020.
The signing day recognized the first of about 100 students who will join DMACC automotive programs in the fall, with each student signing an official letter of intent. The DMACC Automotive Signing Day was held in connection with National Career and Technical Education (CTE) Signing Day.
Just as student-athletes who commit to play a college sport are celebrated, so the DMACC Automotive Signing Day ceremony is designed to honor students who are entering a technical field and emphasizing the importance of their career choice. One lucky signer student was announced as the winner of a $500 DMACC Automotive Technology scholarship, and Snap-on Tools presented each student with a $250 gift.
