With winter making its way to Yelm, Wash., high-school automotive students got a firsthand look at how to prepare a vehicle outside of the classroom. They set up shop in a local parking lot, along with SkillsUSA advisor Brandon Hoke, to perform free safety checks for their community as part of the annual Lights On for Safety event. NAPA Auto Parts donated tools and parts to the automotive program to help. Students learned how to cater to each customer’s needs by using a checklist and writing down what each car needed. In total, 38 vehicles received free safety checks.
