From transmission replacements to an auto tuneup, Cabot High School students are getting hands on experience that’s rarely offered on campus.

The unusual classroom is helping students jumpstart their career in the automotive industry.

Bill McReynolds is the instructor who gives students all the parts and the tools to do the job.

“There’s lots of job opportunities,” he says.

It’s not your typical classroom, but a rare opportunity for Cabot High School students like Wade Ervin, who wants to be an engine performance technician.

“I got accepted to UTI in Dallas Texas, so I figured this will give me a jumpstart in their training program so I’ll be ahead of the game,” Wade says.
