BAVTS NOTES by Alexandra Hutchinson - Career navigation

The 2018-19 school year at BAVTS has been busy. The school hosted its seventh annual car show Sept. 30 to benefit the SkillsUSA organization with the premiere sponsor being Koch 33, a Ford dealership you can find in Easton. Another supporter of the event was Joe’s Tire and Battery, a local car service that has been open since 1967 in its current location in Allentown.

It was a beautiful day, with a variety of vehicles, baskets and home cooked food, including chicken kabobs, sausage sandwiches, corn on the cob and various homemade side dishes.
