Chase Wright, of Winthrop, is a senior from Winthrop High School enrolled for the second year in the Automotive Technology program.

He has liked the program because it has not been just book learning. He likes getting out of the classroom, actually applying the knowledge, and getting to work on cool things. Some of his class projects have included changing axle seals and taking apart an engine, according to the release.

His instructor, Keith Hart said, “Chase is an ideal student. He is always willing to help someone else and always trying to do his best,” according to the release.

When he is not in school, Wright can be found working at one of his jobs, either at Target or C.B. Mattson. He has accepted a full-time position with C.B. Mattson that will begin after his graduation.
