The automotive program at Western allowed me to have a much better understanding of modern and older style vehicles. My time at Western was a great experience.It helped me hone in my problem solving skills, make new friends, and enjoy events and experiences not otherwise possible. It’s not all classroom work, most of the time spent was hands on. For me that’s the only way I can learn. It gave me the confidence and education I need to be successful in this field and I wouldn’t trade my time here for anything. Excellent life experience.Nick Muije
In my short 2 years in the automotive program, I have never enjoyed school more than this. I have learned so much from the true best. Tom and Casey are not only amazing teachers, they are just plain and simple great guys. I've had many great opportunities including SEMA and Skills USA. I've never particularly liked school. In fact, I hated it throughout high school and this is the first time in my life that I actually enjoyed school. I've spent countless hours after school hanging out in the shop with great guys just talking about what we all share a common interest in. Throughout the program, I have made many lifelong friends that I have to thank the Western Wyoming auto program for. One of my favorite things about the program is that you can work on your own project car! Over the past 2 years, I've done lots of work to my VW bus and my Ford Model A. Almost everything is hands-on work; countless hours in the shop actually building and completing activities and that's how it should be. You can only learn so much from a book. Hands-on experience is where you really learn what you're doing.Thomas Mack
A few years ago I didn’t know what I was doing with my life. I felt stuck and had a feeling I wasn’t going to amount to anything. Then Thomas had somehow convinced me to enroll in the automotive technology program so two years ago I started my first set of classes. Yesterday I finished my last class.It has been a crazy, stressful and tiring two years but it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. Casey and Tom were always there to help us whenever we needed them.They went above and beyond to make sure we were being the best we could be. And the friends I’ve made there I will never forget. I’ve never stayed hours after school just to hang out. They have become some of my closest friends.They’ve helped me make life choices and helped me in any way they can. I’ve learned so much, and the experience was even better. I can’t express how much this positively impacted my life. I went from feeling stuck, to feeling like I can do something and actually enjoy it! Thank you guys for changing my life.Tristin Willoughby
