SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) -Scottsbluff High School Students get to show off their mechanical skills in the Diesel Tech Program here at Aulick Industries. And the students cannot get enough of it.

“It’s been amazing like our instructors are really funny,” said Zakk Laeger Scottsbluff High School Student. “They’re are really fun to be around they’re pretty relaxed guys. They teach us everything we need to know they give us the instruction they are not too hard on us when we don’t do it correctly.”

“The reason I started it because I am really interested diesel especially semis,” said Jose Sanchez Scottsbluff High School. “I am learning a lot of new stuff about semis like the wet kits we’re building right now. They operate hydraulic lines trailers all that kind of stuff.”

“It benefits the kids because it gives them a career awareness in a career beyond high school which is what we want to do with our career academies,” Derek Deaver Internship Coordinator Scottsbluff High School. “It fills a local community need we have labor shortages in this industry and several others that’s our job at Scottsbluff High School and our career academies to fill those needs and to benefit the kids with great careers and well paying jobs.”

“I love it kids come in I was kind of a little weary at first that they might not be interested in it,” said James Miller Service Shop Manager Aulick Industries. “They all come in gung ho and after we show them the first time how to go through it we just turned them loose and they just having fun. I enjoyed watching it and it was good.”
