Car Club steps up for GHS auto program
The Grafton High School automotive technology program received a Christmas gift from a local group that has a tradition of helping students.
The Rods-N-Relics Car Group donated specialty tools and equipment valued at $2,000 to the school for use in advanced-level courses.
The gift includes a slide-top, roll cabinet for tool storage; induction heater; low-current probe; computer memory saver; charging and starting system analyzer; refrigerant-leak detector and other items.
Carl Hader, the school's automotive technology instructor, said the tools will improve his students' ability to pinpoint critical engine issues during problem-solved challenges.
"Automobiles are far from what they used to be, and so are the tools and equipment needed to properly diagnose and service them," Hader said.
