NEWARK, N.J and DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, January 27, 2023, The One10Ten Foundation is hosting an event at the Essex County Schools of Technology (ECST) Donald M. Payne Sr. School of Technology which will give students the opportunity to connect with Rennsport-One (RS1), a world-class, championship winning racing team participating in the Michelin Pilot Series BMW Endurance Race at Daytona International Speedway. The students will interact with top drivers, pit crews, technical personnel, and team owners. The exposure will not only open their eyes to the exciting opportunities in driving, but the broad world of professionals who support the motorsports industry.
This is the beginning of a program designed to familiarize students from underrepresented communities with the vast array of career opportunities available through the world of motorsports. The program will include curriculum, field experiences and mentoring.
The ECST liaison for this strategic partnership is Mr. John Dolan, Director of Adult, Career and Technical Education. Mr. Dolan has over 30 years of educational experience in the design and implementation of educational programs and partnerships within elementary, middle school, secondary and post-secondary institutions. "We are extremely excited to be partnering with the One10Ten Foundation and the high caliber corporate partners involved to enable young adults to flourish," said Dolan.
