Berlin, NH—Chandler White, a senior at Berlin High School, has been named a recipient of the NHADA Foundation Automotive Technology Scholarship for $1,500.00. Tim Chapman, GM from AutoNorth Pre-owned Superstore and Charles Lloyd, President of White Mountains Community College presented him with this award. Chandler plans on attending WMCC-Berlin for the Automotive Program.
“Chandler can work independently on most lab assignments, not being afraid to ask questions when needed. He can get assigned lab projects done in a timely manner. His lab and computer skills have placed him in the top 10% of his class. The work ethics this student demonstrates is very helpful in keeping the momentum of the class moving forward. I feel he will contribute significantly to any situation he chooses in the future.”
