Soon after graduating from high school, Marchon King of Vallejo decided to put his love of cars to use. In mapping out a course for himself, he became among the first to enroll in Solano Community College’s new automotive technician program.
“I like cars and I chose to try to work on them,” said the 18-year-old who wants a career as a mechanic.
Still in its beginning phases, Solano College’s automotive program has driven the extra mile by setting up shop inside an old Ford dealership at Georgia Street and Solano Avenue in Vallejo.
