The South Panola High School Career and Technical Education automotive program was recently informed it met the strict industry standards required for accreditation in maintenance and light repair by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Education Foundation.


“We compliment you for attaining the level of excellence recognized by the ASE Education Foundation,” a congratulatory letter read. “Both the educational and automotive communities should be proud of your commitment to quality automotive training.”
