Granite Falls High School CTE Director, Michael Warner, just recently returned from California with his all-girls’ race car team. He sent me these pictures sharing the girls’ experiences while attending this year’s race sponsored by Shell Oil. They hoped by attending this year’s race they could gather information, ideas and a general feeling of what to expect for next year. As you can see by the expressions on their faces in these photos, they are “into this” and are excited to start their design for their race car! As Mr. Warner wrote, “Needless to say it was a wonderful experience for all of us, seeing the teams, cars and races, meeting new people and learning about the “big wide world”.  Our 6 girls are very excited!” What is really cool is that these girls have already sparked more interest in others for the project here at school and will have a “good looking car”! Way to go girls! We look forward to learning more about your adventures come this September.
