From Meg LeDuc’s article on The Voice website:

Dan Rudich spends his time after school working on tractors. The New Haven High School senior, who placed second in auto electrical at SkillsUSA Regional and recently competed at the state level in Grand Rapids, said what he has learned about cars at New Haven High School transfers to tractors.

“I’ve picked up a lot of things here at school that I’m using working on tractors on the farm,” he said. “It all relates to each other.”

Rudich has been working on cars at New Haven High School for four years. The school is one of a few that offer autos classes to freshmen, said autos teacher C.J. Milton.

“Our kids leave the class as freshmen and they have an idea of how to rebuild an engine,” said Milton, who has taught autos for 12 years.

Autos is a strong vocational program at New Haven High School. Of the 320 students in the small school, 120 take Milton’s course. The classes offer them an opportunity to build real-world skills.
