Milestone for Advanced Technology Center

Thursday, the Byron Martin Advanced Technology Center for Lubbock ISD and South Plains College will mark a milestone in the Automotive Technology Program.

A noontime celebration observing the certification of the Auto Tech Program brought supporters of the program together. Byron Martin, former bond manager for LISD and the namesake of the ATC, was the master of ceremonies.

The ATC Auto Tech Program is the recent recipient of the National Automotive Technicians certificate. The NATEF was founded in 1983 to develop, encourage, and improve the quality of automotive schools. The NATEF certification follows an intense survey of the program, which must meet auto industry standards and provide students with the certified training necessary to enter the automotive workforce.

Thursday's program began with a noon luncheon, followed by an awards presentation and reception for community members who have assisted in the development of the Automotive Technology Program at the ATC.

The ATC program, which features computer, graphic design, video training, wood and metal construction programs, in addition to auto technology, is in its seventh year. The program is a partnership between the Lubbock ISD, South Plains College, and Market Lubbock, Inc.
