La Mesa’s Chief of Police Walt Vasquez, with Captain Matt Nicholass and Officer Dan Paugh brought the heat when they visited automotive students from El Cajon, California’s Grossmont High School on Wednesday, Feb. 21st.

Of course, we’re talking about the police department’s black and white 2016 Corvette Stingray that is used for promotional outreach programs across the community.

The officers brought the Corvette to the high school where they shared their mutual interest in vehicles with automotive students as part of Career Technical Education (CTE) Month.

The automotive students, many who may go on to a career in the automotive field, were able to check out the Corvette Stingray up close, and the specifications of the 455-horsepower LT1 6.2 liter V8 were reviewed.

The Corvette Stingray is on loan to the La Mesa Police Department from Bob Stall Chevrolet. Through private donations, the car was outfitted as a promotional police vehicle.

Superintendent Tim Glover said, “We thank Chief Vasquez and our friends at the La Mesa Police Department for taking the time to talk with our students who are developing the technical skills and expertise to work on vehicles in preparation for entering the industry of vehicle maintenance and repair.”

Grossmont High School’s Automotive Pathway offers a high tech, industry-current facility for students to learn skills in the Automotive Industry. In the program, students learn Automotive Technology, Auto Suspension, Steering, and Brakes, as well as Auto Engine performance and Emission Control.
