From LaGrange Daily News:
Troup High School automotive students are putting in long hours after school to prepare for the SkillsUSA competition in November.
The students train for skill stations that will test their knowledge in automotive repair, according to their teacher, Steven Webb. Stations for a vehicle’s electric systems, brakes, balancing tires, alignment, machining rotors and more will be at the competition.
“This is exactly what’s in the field,” said Webb. “This is real life.”
Students train in a million-dollar shop that contains everything they need to repair the 15 vehicles they use to practice on. Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia donated two of the vehicles; several trucks are owned by the county and are used in day-to-day operations.
