REYNOLDSVILLE – The DuBois Harley Davidson Shop has again shown its generosity and support of the community by donating a motorcycle to the Automotive Technology CTE program at Jeff Tech in Reynoldsville.
The donation was made to support a bike build-off competition between Clearfield County Career & Technology Center and Jefferson County-DuBois Area Vocational-Technical School. This local competition will held the second week in April at the DuBois Harley Davidson Shop.
The CCCTC and Jeff Tech received Harley choppers from the DuBois Harley Davidson Shop that they have been challenged to rebuild for the local competition. The winning school will then compete with their chopper at the state level.
The Automotive Technology program at Jeff Tech decided to enlist the assistance of other CTE programs at the school to get the chopper rebuilt. Assisting the students from Automotive Technology in this competition are students from Auto Body, Welding and Metal Fabrication, Machine Shop and Building Trades.
Andy Watt, long-time instructor of the Automotive Technology program at Jeff Tech said, “I thought this competition would be both fun for our students, as well as a great learning experience for them.
“It was very generous of the Harley Davidson Shop of DuBois to donate these bikes to our program and to Clearfield for the competition.”
Although Clearfield has competed several times already, this year is the first year for Jeff Tech to enter the competition. Watt indicated that no matter how the competition turns out he believes these experiences to be beneficial to his program.
