Students win medals at state competition
–With the counsel of Rotarian, Ryan Amborn (owner of West Coast Auto and Towing), Charles Herrera, the auto shop instructor at Atascadero High School, built a team of young people and taught them about Power Mechanics. Herrera was able to take his team to the Skills USA regional competition in Paso Robles. Three of the students, Ryan Burgess, Ian Carney, and Daniel Bererra, won the honor of advancing to the California State Competition, held in San Diego.

On April 15th, students from Del Rio High, Atascadero High and the GreenSmart employment program stormed the water company. The six young people were given a 3 1/2 hour tour of the Atascadero Mutual Company and several of the companies facilities.  They even got to visit a site where the water company was installing a new service connection.  The students got a great immersion into the reality of working for a water company. If you have a business that could host a Mobile Career Day, let us know through our website at
