Jerrod Thompson (left), a student at Caliche High School who is enrolled in the secondary automotive technology program at Northeastern Junior College has been recognized at the NAPA Auto and Truck Parts Student of the Month. Thompson was recognized as the recipient for the month of November as winners are selected post facto. He received the recognition in mid-December once it was determined that he had the best attendance and the best grade in the class during this time frame. He competed with 26 other students to win the award.
NAPA provides a monthly award during the school year which is alternated between the college’s secondary program, it’s collegiate auto tech program and it’s collegiate diesel technology program.
