On November 3rd, DRIVE held it's 5th Annual Bowling Fundraiser at Sterling Lanes in Sterling Heights
The event, which has become one of the top-two biggest annual fundraisers for DRIVE, is also one of the most anticipated events each year for DRIVE Students.
This year had over 130 in attendance, and raised over $3,000 for the program, and will assist DRIVE in providing students with much-needed tools, equipment, and consumables.
We'd like to thank all the DRIVE One Students, Families, and Sponsors, who showed-up, had fun, and supported our program.
After months of work completing projects, on May 5th, several student-built machines and models made their way to Dakota High School for the Michigan Industrial Technology Education Society (M.I.T.E.S) Regional Finals.
Juniors Robert Nicovic, Kenny Thompson, and Austin Vang swept 1st-3rd with their Shop Vises, just as our first three M.I.T.E.S Projects did back in 2013. Lastly, Miranda Rumfelt's 1:5 Scale Model of a 2017 Pontiac Trans Am concept not only won first, but captured the overall Grand Prize in the Open-B category, marking the the third consecutive year a DRIVE Model won the Overall Grand Prize at Regionals.
The following Saturday, May 13th, the Vises and T/A traveled to Saginaw Valley State University for the M.I.T.E.S State Finals against all other student-built projects in the State.
Again, all three vises swept 1st-3rd, with scholarships to MIAT and Lincoln Tech going to Robert, Kenny, & Austin.
Miranda was the big winner, however, as her T/A became the first-ever DRIVE Project to capture the Grand Prize at States in the Open-B Category. She Also Won a Scholarship from the American Society of Body Engineers (ASBE) for "Creativity", and that cuvited 1st Place Plaque. Congrats to All the Students for their success at this year's competition. We look forward to seeing what you for next year's Competition as Seniors.

The show included over 33 cars, along with a Bake Sale, 50/50 Raffle, Pedal Car Raffle, along with BBQ Hot Dogs, and tours of the DOTC.
Through all the festivities and simple donations, the "SITV" Show raised over $1,200 for the program, and aided our efforts to provide students with the best vocational training in all of Macomb County.
We would like to thank the students and families of DRIVE One, as well as the local Car Buffs, Sponsors, and Donors who helped made this event a success.
Following the success of this summer's event, we're 100% certain there will be a 2nd Annual Show next July!!!
