Students from Morse High School Automotive Program Help Develop Paint Design for New 2018 Ford Mustang, F150 Truck; Vehicles on Display Friday at Morse

WHAT: The new 2018 Ford Mustang and F-150 Truck will be on display at Morse High School, featuring a paint design that students from Morse High's automotive program helped create.

WHEN: Friday, May 25, 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

WHERE: Morse High School Auto Shop Lot, 6905 Skyline Dr. (92114). Please check in at the office first and contact Greg Quirin.

DETAILS: In fall 2017, students in Morse High School's automotive program were invited to work behind the scenes with Air Design USA, Sherwin Williams Automotive Paint, and Ford Motor Company. This was a top-secret job shadow that provided several students the opportunity to work side-by-side with professional automotive designers and painters to create a paint design for the new 2018 Ford Mustang and F-150 Truck.

At the time, both of these vehicles had never be been revealed to the public. The students worked daily for several weeks with the automotive professionals in the automotive paint booth at Morse High. These pre-production vehicles where then transported and revealed for the first time at the 2017 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) automotive convention in Las Vegas. After the SEMA show, both vehicles were put on display at the 2018 Detroit and LA Auto shows, which attract thousands of automotive aficionados each year

The automotive program at Morse High School is just one example of the multiple college, career and technical education (CCTE) opportunities available to San Diego Unified high school students. CCTE courses are offered in 15 industry sectors, including automotive, culinary arts, and broadcast, and are aimed at providing students with skills in-line with local and economic workforce needs, and necessary for success in post-secondary life, whether that be college, entry-level employment or career advancement.

SPEAKERS: Students, designers
