SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KCAU) – Class was in session Monday at Sioux City’s Career Academy on Monday, but it was an open air kind of class that students were able to enjoy.
Students at the Harry Hopkins campus used the sunny day to reveal their project car alongside some of their personal vehicles and work from the Scene of the Crash car club. The club presented students with a check for $1,800 that will be used to help support the automotive program at the career academy.
“All of us that have cars have gone through those classes and we just want to make sure that they stay alive. Kind of gives a spark again and kids want to go to their classes because of the future needs, hands-on type mechanics. Because you got to have mechanics for everything,” says Rodney Reisdorph, creator of the Scene of the Crash Rockabilly Car Show.
Monday’s donation was thanks to funds from the Scene of the Crash Rockability car show held in Sioux City last July.
