Thanks Again Folks. This came from Jarod today. Exactly what we want to hear about those teaching our next generation. Bless the teachers in the world. John

Dear friends of Russ Cleaton, 10-22-2020
We received your gift to North Mecklenburg High School’s Automotive Program. Memorializing Russ through a gift helping young technicians is a wonderful idea! We are honored to have been chosen as the recipient of your thoughtful gift. There are mechanics that choose to work with their hands because they need to make a living. Russ and I chose this profession because we both shared a passion for hand skills. Helping others through our hands is an honorable occupation, and every school day we try to gift our young students with this philosophy. The school system provides us with what we need to teach automotive technology, but your gift will help us provide the extra things that help make this program shine. We promise to use your gift to help with tools for graduating students entering their first job without any, offsetting the costs for field trips to local inspiring businesses, and other expenses directly related to inspiring our young technicians. The understanding that “it takes a village” cannot be more true when mentoring our youth. You are our village. We thank you.
Respectfully,

Jarod Brown
