Five Automotive Teachers Named Winners of 2019 Harbor Freight Tools for Schools Prize

Five public high school automotive teachers—Ken Cox and Dennis Johnson of California, David Lilly of New Hampshire, Joel Massarello of Michigan and Baxter Weed of Vermont—are among the 18 winners of the 2019 Harbor Freight Tools for Schools Prize for Teaching Excellence, the highest number of automotive winners of the prize in its three-year history.

First-place winners and their schools will receive $100,000—$70,000 for the high school skilled trades program and $30,000 for the teacher. Second-place winners, including the five automotive technology teachers, will each receive $50,000, with $35,000 going to their public high school skilled trades program and $15,000 to the individual teacher or team.

 

“Skilled trades educators are crucial to helping students stay engaged and motivated in high school,” said Danny Corwin, executive director of Harbor Freight Tools for Schools. “We make these awards because we believe in these teachers, we believe in these students, and we believe this vital sector deserves more support and investment.”
