Technical Careers High School in ID Prepares Car To Be Donated to Family in Need

Written by Tristan Lewis, Local News 8

On March 14, Technical Careers High School in Bonneville School District 93 in Idaho Falls, ID, was finishing up the last few touches on a car to be donated to a family in need.


The high school works closely with Intermountain Auto Body Supply throughout the year. On March 13, the company asked the school if they could fix up an old car for a family that did not have one.


The collision repair and refinishing class was asked to paint the car and have it ready for delivery by March 16.


Students came to school at 8 a.m. March 14 to get it stripped and ready to be painted.


"When [the students] heard the story and they heard what was going on, they were all on board," said Todd Smith, an instructor. "I did not have to talk anyone into it; they [wanted] to work on it and were like, 'Let's go.' They wanted to be the first ones out here."


Smith said the turnaround for a project like this was much quicker than what his students were used to; 10 students were involved in helping refurbish the car.


The class worked on putting the car back together March 15.
