CTC automotive students selected for BMW MetroSTEP Scholarship

(­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Marietta, Ga. – June 20, 2013) BMW selected five students from Chattahoochee Technical College’s automotive technology program to receive a scholarship to participate in its Service Technician Education Program, MetroSTEP. Through the program students attend a BMW sponsored automotive training school for six months and work as an apprentice in a local dealership. The scholarship is available to minority students who have recently or are soon-to-graduate from a post-secondary school.

“This is quite an honor as this is the first time Chattahoochee Technical College has been invited to send candidates to interview for the program. Our students filled five of the eight openings, which is outstanding,” said Kevin Ruby, instructor of automotive technology.

The guidelines for MetroSTEP require that candidates maintained a GPA of 3.5 and an excellent attendance rate during their time in college.  Also, applicants must have a clean driving record, willingness to relocate and a drive to succeed. Upon completion of the program, STEP graduates are able to apply for BMW service positions throughout the country.

Howard Williams of Marietta, Alex Sesay of Austell, Gene Solomon of Douglasville, Roy Garcia of Smyrna, and Johnathan Henderson of Marietta were chosen following the two-part interview process. The MetroSTEP program began June 7 and students are scheduled to graduate December 6.
