Getting hands dirty before getting them wet:
Robert Benning, auto body instructor, works with Tessa Brammer, student and Skills USA club president, on a project. The auto body class labors to finish their work for the day in order to head to the Skills USA car was fundraiser scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. on March 15. Part of the funds from the car wash will offset costs for the Wyoming state competition beginning April 15 in Casper for which the auto-body and auto-diesel students are preparing. Half of the proceeds from the weekend’s car wash will go to the Shriners’ Children’s Hospital as the students’ way of saying thanks for the help the organization gave to one of their own when it helped pay for an expensive surgery needed by the daughter of one of the auto body students.
