DIY: Pennsylvania Students Upgrade New School District Police Car
From a story posted at qvsd.org
Students at Quaker Valley High School in Leetsdale, PA have been working to upgrade a new district police car. The car was a donation from the borough of Sewickley but needed some minor repairs and upgrades before it could be used.
Students in the Auto Body Repair and the Automotive Technology programs at Parkway West Career and Technology Center worked to fix the mechanical problems on the car including the ball joints, suspension, air conditioner, battery, belts, and decal removal. The students were able to get hands-on auto repair experience while saving the district hundreds of dollars. Three of the students in the program, Tyler Flynn, Tanner Mosholder, and Michael Snyder, are from QV and deserve a special thanks.
The new decals on the car were created by QVHS Art Teacher Mr. Jeremy Pidhirny. Students in Mrs. Jason Brindza's class helped clean the car and put the new decals on. Thanks to Caesar Retamal, Ryan Dye, Doug Balsley and Boris Chapin-Fortin.
