Training New Mechanics and Getting Involved in the Community


Going the Extra Mile

A Discussion About Lack of Trades in School and Community

If kids want to learn a trade, chances are they can only go to one high school, depending on the type of trade. There’s a lack of skilled labor and when school systems feel it’s not important to teach these skills, who’s going to step up and teach?

On this episode of Harford County Living, Rich Bennett, host of Harford County Living and Co-Host, Lyle Garitty, sit down with Ron Filling, General Manager of Thompson Automotive of Harford County, and Councilman Andre Johnson. They discuss a new apprenticeship program that Thompson has started because of the lack of trades in high schools and how they are involved in the community.
