Schaeffer’s Harley-Davidson Partners with STC for Battle of the Kings Motor Cycle Competition.
Frackville, PA – Schaeffer’s Harley-Davidson partnered with students enrolled in the Outdoor Power Technology Program at Schuylkill Technology Center (STC) to build a customer Harley-Davidson Motor Cycle for the Battle of the Kings competition. The finished project will be unveiled at the Schuylkill Technology North Campus on Monday, April 15, 2019 at 1pm.
The 2019 Harley-Davidson Battle of the Kings Competition guidelines require participants to partner with a career and technical school. As a result, Goeff Bogotuik, General Manager for Schaeffer’s Harley-Davidson, reached out to Outdoor Power Technology Instructor Jason Wright at STC. The following STC students participated in the project: Jarrett Butz, senior from Blue Mountain; Cade Stone, a junior from Pottsville; Aaron Smith, junior from Tamaqua and Dawson Paulo, senior from Tamaqua. The team worked cooperatively to choose the “dirt racing inspired design,” said Mr. Wright. A 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob was the base model for the creation. Students went to Schaeffer’s Harley Davidson two days per week over the past two months to work on the project. In addition, two students enrolled in the Collision Repair Program at STC South; Rebecca Kramer, senior from Blue Mountain and Bailee Nauyalis, senior from Schuylkill Haven, custom painted the parts used for the project.
The final product, named “The Dirt Chip,” will be unveiled to STC Students on Monday, April 15th at the North Campus. Scheaffer’s will be unveiling the Dirt Chip Bike to general public at 1:30pm on April 27th during the Spring Open House and Vendor Showcase, which benefits Muscular Dystrophy Association.
People’s Choice Voting for the Battle of Kings Competition will run from 4/15/19 through 5/15/19. The winning bike in each of the three categories will be selected to proceed to the next level of the competition. A U.S. Champion will then be showcased at 2019 EICMA for a chance to win the Global Battle of the Kings Title.
STC Students Build Trophy Case for
Mahanoy Area High School
Mahanoy City, PA– Carpentry Students from Schuylkill Technology Center will be installing a new trophy case at the Mahanoy Area High School on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 9am. The 30 foot case, made from oak, was built by Carpentry Students at the South Campus under the direction of Carpentry Instructor, Philip Kintzel. “The students enjoyed working on a project of this scope that will be showcased in one of our member districts,” said Kintzel. The project began at the request of Stanley Sabol Jr., Principal of Mahanoy Area, and in conjunction with Ed Blazis, Facilities Manager for Mahanoy Area.
Craig Werner, from Werner Lumber, has volunteered his services to assist with transporting the case from STC South to Mahanoy Area.

The Carpentry Program Of Study (POS) has tasks associated with interior finish. Each Carpentry student has an educational plan that articulates the secondary career and technical programs to postsecondary degree or diploma or certificate programs through the PDE's .SOAR program. The interior stair project is a level three project which not only involves stairs, but drywall, trim, wall finish, and wall framing. Currently there are nine students working on individual projects. Students build everything from construction grade lumber, boards, or plywood. The only piece that the student did not make is the handrail. The starting box newel, balusters, and stair treads were all student built. The shop is currently full of stair projects at various stages of finish. (October 2018)
