Alix Rivard, an outstanding student in the Macomb Community College automotive program, was presented the 2017 NACAT Education Foundation Host School Student Scholarship during the 44th annual NACAT conference.

Rivard is pursuing a career in the automotive field because it has always been one of her passions. She currently works as a technician and relays that it is a job which she loves. She appreciates that every day can be a challenge and is thankful that Macomb Community College has given her the chance to learn and become a better technician.

Rivard’s long term goal is to become a high-performance engine builder / machinist. She states, “Engine building, to me, means a chance to create something all your own. I’ve always been a creative person. I love fabricating and using problem-solving to make things work. Engine building really challenges me in this way, and I feel like it would even more so in the high-performance industry.” To schieve her dream, she plans to continue her education after obtaining her degree from Macomb Community College.

James Curry, the NACAT Education Foundation Executive Director, said of Rivard, “Alix is an outstanding example of why this scholarship exists. She is an excellent student who, like so many others, needs supplementary resources to be able to ensure her continued ability to matriculate. Our hope is that this scholarship will help her realize her automotive dream.”

The NACAT Education Foundation Host School Student Scholarship award provided $1000 toward school class credits.
