Freedom High School Automotive in WI Awarded Hagerty Education Grant

Freedom High School Automotive has been awarded a $10,000.00 education grant from the Hagerty Education Program at America’s Car Museum.

Freedom High School (FHS) was chosen from a nationwide pool of applicants for this year’s award. The grant will play a key role in funding the replacement of Freedom High Schools paint booth. FHS Automotive has been fundraising for years to replace the booth which has served the program well for over 40 years, but is in need of an update.

The paint booth is a key piece of equipment for the program which is the only of its kind in Wisconsin able to do full collision, refinishing, and restoration at the high school level.
