The Mechatronics Technology Certificate of Credit from Motlow State Community College has been awarded to 13 students at Warren County High School. 
This is largest class thus far to complete the four college classes and maintain at least a 2.0 GPA in order to have the ability to take the Siemens Level 1 test to become a certified Siemens Mechatronics System Assistant.
WCHS Mechatronics instructor Melissa Paz said, “I am so proud of these students for completing these four college classes as well as completing the requirements needed to graduate from Warren County High School. It was not an easy thing to do. These 13 students will always hold a special place in my heart and I can’t wait to see what they accomplish in life.”
Tracy Risinger, CTE director at WCHS, said, “The commitment and determination of these 13 Mechatronics students is apparent in the goals they set for themselves. Not only did these students enroll in Motlow State Community College Dual Enrollment Mechatronics courses while in high school, they also participated in the Siemens Mechatronics Level 1 Industry Certification Exam. These students are thinking about their future and determined to take steps while in high school to increase their chances of success in post-secondary opportunities and the workforce.”
