Warren County Career Center Automotive Technology students Keith Niver, left, and Ryan Haslett will compete as a team at the Ford/AAA Auto Skills Specialist Competition on May 5-7 in Bethlehem. The students will work on a Ford Fiesta with the same accessories as the one pictured behind them, which was donated for the students to practice on for four weeks by Midtown Motors of Warren. Using digital scanners and volt meters, the students will have to identify and correct 15 to 20 electrical and electronic bugs built into the vehicle by competition judges. The winners of the state competition will be invited to the national competition this summer in Dearborn, Mich. Haslett and Niver have already earned applications for employment as technicians with Ford Motor Co.
