Bathurst, NB student among Castrol scholarship winners!

This year’s Castrol High School Synthetic Oil educations project has been a runaway success. Creating its own contact list with high school automotive teachers in several regions of the country, Wakefield Canada sent educational materials and oil to practice with to auto shop classes all over Canada representing over 17,000 technical students. Every student also completed a supplied test  based on the video and classroom information each class used in their synthetic oil session.

A student herself, Intern Britani Dickinson assisted Wakefield Canada’s Chad Cole to draw the winners of the Castrol $1,000 high school scholarships

The participating teachers and students realize that understanding growing trends and new technology is a vital part of education for students entering the field and received the program enthusiastically. In addition to the up-to-date information the students received, every one who passed the lesson became eligible for a $1,000 to aid in their continuing studies. For 2007, based on the areas included, four scholarships are awarded from their names chosen from the entries at Wakefield’s head office in Toronto.

Included in the scholarship winners was one from Atlantic Canada. Pierre Thibodeau (photo above), New Brunswick Community College, Bathurst Campus 75 Youghall Dr. Bathurst, NB  E2A 4X5 (506) 547-2945 Teacher:  Mr. Glenn Arseneau.
