EHOVE’S Auto Body student Porsche Donich (Danbury HS) is proud of the work she and her classmates did to repair her truck during class. They took rust off the body of the truck, fixed dents and repainted the whole truck a deep purple color.
“All the dent repair skills I have learned at EHOVE have been a huge help,” said Donich, a senior in the program. “Working as a team helped me with my leadership skills as well.”
Students in EHOVE’s Auto Body Program learn how to fix damaged vehicles using professional techniques including welding, sanding, painting and wrench work skills. They are prepared for careers where they can become an auto body repair tech, body shop owner or auto refinisher.
Currently Donich is also working on repairing her engine and is proud of the outcome of her vehicle with the skills she learned in EHOVE’s Auto Body Program. Even though there traditionally aren’t many females in the career field, she is undaunted. “More girls should get into the auto body field,” she said. “Girls can do anything a guy can do.”
Donich is considering attending Ohio Technical College after graduation to study classic car restoration.
