Muhl auto 2 2MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (5/13/19) — Muhlenberg County Schools and Madisonville Community College have partnered to launch automotive technology courses that will be available for both currently enrolled high school students as dual credit and for adults in the evening. For the first time, MCC will offer evening classes in automotive repair for adults during the fall 2019 semester at the West Campus of Muhlenberg County High School. High school students will be able to use dual credit scholarships to help with the cost.

“I’m excited about offering this because I know it will help students get jobs right here in this community,” said James Wester, automotive instructor for the high school. “Starting salaries are strong in the region and students can get really good jobs and be close to home.”

“We’re really excited to be able to do this,” said Dr. Scott Cook, provost at MCC. “I think it’s a great opportunity for us to celebrate together.”

Muhlenberg County Schools Superintendent Robbie Davis said the program is good news for students.

“We are excited about the opportunity that it’s giving our kids," said Davis. "It’s obviously an opportunity for our community as well. We just appreciate our partnership with Madisonville Community College.”

The engine repair class for adults will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. during the fall semester. The classes include learning theory and shop time working on vehicles in the lab under the direction of the faculty. Upon completion of the courses, the students will earn the college’s engine repairer certificate.
