ELHS AUTO TECH STUDENTS EXCEL | News, Sports, Jobs – The Review – The Review

For the first time in instructor John Torma’s nine years heading East Liverpool High School’s automotive technology program all but one of his students earned Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification in the two-year career program. Torma explained it is like the ACT standardized test for college admissions. But it is for the auto industry and certification is a highly difficult accomplishment for mechanics who have spent decades in the business let alone high school students. Pictured from left are Zachary Shanor, Justin Tatsch and Hayden Lawson, all who earns certification in more than seven categories that include engine repair, automatic transmission, manual drive train, suspension, brakes, electrical systems, heating and air conditioning. Not pictured but also scoring two certifications or more in ASE categories were Clayton Sergeuk (5), Cody Smith (3), Shawn Underwood (3), Theo Pethtel (3), Jeremy Todd (3), Donovan Broderick (3) and Devon Keys (2). Monday was the last day at ELCH for seniors. Torma hosted a cookout for his students to celebrate their accomplishment. (Photo by Stephanie Ujhelyi)
