    Maybe there Is Hope ?

    Harbor Freight Tools for Schools

    We think high school skilled trades teachers are worth a million bucks. Actually, we think they're priceless. And that's why we're excited to announce that we've doubled this year's Harbor Freight Tools for Schools Prize for Teaching Excellence to $1 million!

    A few months ago, I shared with you stories of the amazing skilled trades high school teachers who won last year's prize. We were so inspired by their commitment and passion for teaching that we wanted to do more. This year, we're awarding more than $1 million in prizes to even more outstanding skilled trades teachers and their public high schools.

    Three first-place winners and their schools will receive $100,000 ($30,000 to the teacher or teacher team, and $70,000 to their high school's skilled trades program), and 15 second-place winners will receive $50,000 ($15,000 to the teacher or teacher team, and $35,000 to their high school's skilled trades program).

    We've seen firsthand the impact that skilled trades teachers in this country are making in the lives of students. They're teaching them how to repair cars, how to weld, how to build houses, how to install electrical systems and plumbing, the list goes on and on. These educators are giving our young people tangible skills that lead to great jobs after high school graduation.

    Skilled trades teachers are heroes, and it's time to recognize them. If you're a skilled trades teacher at a U.S. public high school, please apply. And if you know a great skilled trades teacher, please forward this message to them and encourage them to apply.

    Applications are open now through July 6 at hftforschoolsprize.org. Stay up to date on the latest prize news on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

    We can't wait to shine a spotlight on the great work that these teachers are doing!

    Sincerely,

    Nice to hear that. Good man, good company doing good things.
    Benghazi was a 4 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Clinton emails was a 2 year investigation, there were zero indictments. The Mueller investigation has been 12 months, there have been 23 indictments.

    When 11 American prisoners in North Korea were released during the Obama administration, the President didn’t make it into a spectacle about himself.

    Trump was right Roseanne is about you.

    I am never sure.
    My family and my enemies swear that I am.
    And I kind of like it that way. <g>
    My friends however insist that I am not.

    Why do you ask?

    Are you against people supporting the trades? This is an area that too often gets overlooked and should be supported and applauded.

    Replies to signature quotes aside...

    I find it intriguing that what is considered a "junk tool" company is the ONLY ONE that is doing something like this. It's a lot of money, too. Why arent and why cant the major manufacturers do similar?

    Tim Kaine and others wanted to do more for the trades a few years back. I believe it was a bipartisan bill too. Hopefully more can be done. While an education with a degree needs to be supported it isn't the only path for success.

    Perhaps it would be different if you were a "Pro Member" rather than a "Regular Member"? Did they say why? I assume it was Dad that removed it. He usually has a valid reason.
