La. High School Opens Body Shop
Oct. 21, 2019—Walker High School in La., opened a body shop so students can get hand-on experience, reported WAFB.
The paint and body shop is 1,200 square feet. The new facility houses two bays, one for holding the painting booth and the other for bodywork lessons. Gerry Lane Enterprises donated the facility, while PPG Paints has given much of the paint needed for the work.
Some 22 students in 10 to 12 grades are already enrolled in the career-based paint and body shop class.
The school will provide students with district vehicles that need repairs and painting as their “class projects."
