From Fairbanks Daily News-Miner:

When it comes to career and technical education, the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District can compete with the best and biggest.

North Pole High School automotive teacher Gerry Million’s automotive students have been bringing home first place awards from AAA for years, and Hutchison High School has been churning out qualified career candidates right out of high school for years.

Million’s automotive program is a powerhouse in the state, but then Hutch brought in a secret weapon — Kelly Shaw. Now in his fourth year at Hutch, Shaw is turning the career and technical high school’s auto program into a similarly dominating force, guiding his students to first place in the Alaska Auto Skills competition in each of his first three years.
