UTI has teamed up with major car companies such as Toyota, Ford, Chevrolet, Volvo, BMW and Mercedes-Benz to offer industry certifications and credentials plus real word experiences. Most of the students were from the WHS School of Engineering and Industrial Technology Smaller Learning Community.

Over 170 students participated from Woodland, Napa, Reno, Yuba City, Esparto, Davis, Sacramento, Vacaville and Dixon.

Every 15 Minutes
Students Learn Dangers of Drinking and Driving
Students at WHS experienced the Every 15 Minutes program recently. An announcement was made at the beginning of the day Thursday explaining an overview of the program. Following the announcement, a heartbeat/flat line played roughly every fifteen minutes as a student was escorted from class by the Grimm Reaper. This student “died” in a drunk driving related incident and did not return to classes. The Grimm Reaper and the selected students gathered near the flagpole each time students changed classes.
Later in the morning a message played describing a crash. Students were asked to report to Beamer Avenue where a head-on crash scene was staged. Students saw two cars complete with "injured and deceased" victims. They witnessed the response of the Woodland Fire and Police Departments, ambulance services, Highway Patrol and Reach life flight helicopter as personnel worked feverishly to extricate victims and transport them to local hospitals and the morgue. The "drunk driver" was arrested by local police after being checked for "injuries."
Friday, students attended an assembly/"funeral service" to reflect on and discuss the effects of drunk driving. Counselors were available on campus for both day's events if students needed them.
