Cooperative Education Spotlight- Aniika Craddock
When Aniika Craddock was in 9th grade, she informed her parents she was interested in attending Cumberland Perry AVTS. A tad shocked, they were very supportive of her choice. She applied for the Automotive Technology program and was accepted later that year. Aniika, now a senior from Cumberland Valley High School, spends half her day employed by Faulkner Subaru thorough the cooperative education program. She attends CV each morning for her academic classes and then reports to work at noon. Every day brings a new adventure with battery checks, tire rotations, brake inspections, oil changes, and many other preventive maintenance tasks. She will also assist mainline techs when her line isn’t busy. Aniika loves to report to work each day because the co-workers all feel like family to her. The Faulkner Family has been a great business partner for Cumberland Perry AVTS. Aniika and many other cooperative education students have capped off their vocational education experience working at the local dealerships. Aniika isn’t sure where her future will take her, but working in to automotive field in some capacity is almost a given.
