Congrats to CTE  Auto Technology II students Owen Hillegass of Monroe-Woodbury and Kaden Marvin of Pine Bush who placed 4th in New York State in the Greater New York Auto Dealers Association (GNYADA) Statewide Automotive Competition held at the Center for Automotive Education and Training in Whitestone, New York. They ranked near the top of twelve teams that competed.  

Michael Cancellieri, their Auto Technology instructor, coached them during the regional competitions as well as the NYS competition. Kaden and Owen were Team Chevrolet and practiced troubleshooting "bugs" on a 2017 Malibu at Healey Chevrolet in Middletown for weeks before the event.  

Steven Briski of Goshen and Sam McNally of Monroe-Woodbury also competed in the GNYADA competition as Team Subaru and practiced on a 2017 Legacy at Johnston's Subaru in Middletown. They worked under the supervision of their instructor Matthew Dykes

CTE Auto Technology students have always enjoyed the support of local business partners such as Healey Chevrolet and Johnston's Toyota/Subaru. This year was no different as these dealerships shared their time and expertise in supporting these talented young men to compete against the best of the best across New York State.
