October 21, 2016 -- JVS students in the Collision Repair program and 9th grade students in the Career Connections Academy are getting creative and painting snow plows that will be seen and used all over Lorain County.
For the 4th consecutive year, Lorain County JVS has signed up to participate in the Ohio Department of Transportation District 3’s Paint A Plow Program.
Mr. Lonnie Higey, Collision Repair Instructor stated, "This year we wanted to do something a little different, so we invited the freshman to get involved and help paint the designs on the plows. It is a great way to get them involved early; plus they are having a good time working with the junior class on this project."
The plows need to be ‘road ready’ by October 31st. The artfully painted blades will be mounted on plow trucks and displayed in holiday parades and events in November and early December, barring any operational needs.
