AVR & ACE Students Visit Auto Show

Jim Morris

The Academy at Virginia Randolph (Automotive Technology, Auto Body), and the ACE Center at Hermitage (Automotive Technology) and Highland Springs(Automotive Technology, Auto Body) were able to visit the Virginia Motor Trend International Car Show. They were treated to breakfast and listened to a great speaker, Jim Morris. Mr. Morris is a former pro baseball player who did not start his professional baseball career until he was 35 when it was discovered that he could throw a 98mph fastball. Check out the movie The Rookie with Dennis Quaid. It is based on his story.

After they listened to Jim’s great stories the students spent the day sitting in every car they could and cranking up the stereos.
