LUBBOCK, Texas -


Students in Monterey's engineering program, Project Lead the Way, were recognized for their senior projects. They worked all year innovating new phone cases, better ways to dispose of garbage and how to prevent scuffed shoes.

Claire Mckinney and Rob Littlefield, both recognized by their fellow peers for their projects, said the program helps to prepare them for the future.

"It gives you confidence knowing that you've done a little bit more than everybody else has done. This program has, i'm confident, given me sufficient knowledge and confidence going to college," Littlefield said.

Four students in Project Lead the Way were recognized with $500 scholarships to help with college.
