New Formula Student USA Racing Project

    The Automotive Technology programs at Penta Career Center will soon be able to build and race Formula First race vehicles thanks to a generous donation from Mark Schoenlein, current member of the Penta Board of Education, and a matching gift from his employer, O-I and The O-I Charities Foundation. During the June 28 Penta Board of Education meeting, Schoenlein and his wife, Meg, presented a check for $3,000 and O-I matched the Schoenleins’ gift with a $6,000 check.
    “We are very grateful to the Schoenleins and O-I for these generous donations,” said Ronald Matter, superintendent of Penta Career Center. “Our students and staff are excited for this opportunity which will ultimately enhance their career-technical experience and enable them to learn 21st century skills so they can be successful in the workforce.”
    The students will work with a well-known program called Formula Student USA to develop the racing project at Penta. Plans include involving many Penta programs in the project including Automotive Technology, Automotive Collision Repair, Powersports & Engine Systems, Welding, and Marketing Education. The project is expected to begin during the 2017-2018 school year.
