Rowan-Salisbury Schools CTE Department to hold car show
CHINA GROVE – The Rowan-Salisbury Schools Career and Technical Education Department will host a Skills and Wheels RSS Career and Technical Education Car Show at Carson High School on Sept. 28.
The show will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with registration starting at 8 a.m. There will be awards such as “Best in Show,” “Best Interior” and “Best Paint” from 2 to 3 p.m.
It will be the CTE Department’s first ever car show, and it will feature cars, food, raffles, vendors and Joe Gibbs Racing’s Game Plan for Life’s show car.
Game Plan for Life is a nonprofit group started by Joe Gibbs, owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, that encourages students to make positive decisions by bringing motivational speakers into schools to discourage underage drinking and share stories about handling and overcoming adversity.
Skills and Wheels will raise money for career and technical student organizations to participate in local, regional, state and national competitions, said Holly Pore, director of career and technical education for the school system.
“These CTSO experiences provide our students with opportunities to enhance personal development, leadership and career skills in technical fields,” Pore said.
Pore said the fundraiser is intended to bring together various CTE program areas and the Rowan County community to enhance student learning and exploration.
“The Rowan-Salisbury Schools’ renewal directional system connects academic skills, interpersonal skills, and unique life goals for every student which inherently is at the center of CTE curricular experiences,” she said.
Brandi Gavion, special populations coordinator for the CTE Department, said the car show will raffle off cornhole boards, Winston-Salem Dash baseball tickets, and tickets for other sporting events and teams.
“This is a family-friendly fundraising event to raise money for CTE student organizations and program areas across the area,” Gavion said.
Sunset Slush of Lexington will serve Italian ice, and Rowan-Salisbury Schools food and nutrition staff will serve food, she said.
Gavion pitched the idea for the car show after attending one for Davie High School’s automotive program.
The car show will be held outside Carson High’s front entrance in the main parking lot.
Registration for vendors and anyone interested in showcasing a car is $25.
Registration is available at www.cterowan.com.
The rain date is Oct. 5.
The car show is free and open to the public.
