VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – A group of local high school girls are helping drive the future of females in the auto mechanics industry.
West Vigo High School has a FIAT class. FIAT stands for “females in automotive technology”.
The automotive mechanics class is open to girls only. It’s helping them work toward their Automotive Service Excellence certification.
The school wanted to get more girls involved in the traditionally male-dominated field of auto mechanics.
This is the first year for the program.
