From Travis M. Whitehead’s article on the Valley Morning Star website:
Marcos Fragoso loves detailing automobiles with colorful and artistic designs.
“I like doing that,” said Marcos, 15, pointing to a glistening blue door of a truck at the Harlingen High School Auto-body and Collision Shop.
“That’s something I want to learn,” he said enthusiastically.
The Harlingen High School sophomore has already begun learning some basics of auto body work. But a $300,000 check from the Texas Workforce Commission will allow for the purchase of state-of-the-art equipment.
The donation is through the Jobs and Education for Texans (JET) grant. TWC presented the grant to the Harlingen school district in a formal ceremony yesterday afternoon.
