Aims Community College will hold the 2005 Automotive Career Awareness Event Thursday, Feb. 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Trades and Industry Building on the Greeley campus. “This is a great opportunity for high school graduates, juniors and seniors who may be interested in finding out what automotive career opportunities are available to them,” said Butch Webeck, Aims’ automotive technology instructor. The program is also sponsored by the Automotive Youth Educational Systems, an organization focused on interesting new students in careers as automotive technicians. Guest speakers include Roger Ramirez with Weld County Garage, Dwight Minnie with Ghent Chevrolet, and Bob Sidebottom with AYES. “The speakers will be addressing the latest technology, and we’ll have Q&A sessions,” Webeck said. New 2005 vehicles will also be on display. Aims offers A.A.S. degrees in Automotive Collision Repair and Automotive Service Technology, along with certificates in specialties such as street rod, upholstery, custom painting, brakes, transmissions and engine mechanics, just to name a few.
