Gord OsbourneThink all high school auto shop classes are the same?

Every once in a while, we hear of a teacher or a group of students who is doing something unique to develop the next generation of auto service technicians.

The CBC recently profiled teacher Gord Osbourne who has made his course at Kingsville District High School in Southerwestern Ontario a popular place for aspiring techs.

According to the CBC’s recent report, Osbourne has helped his students create a monster truck, and convert a pickup truck from gas power to electric.

The class recently held an auto show which also collected donations for the local food bank.
