TORRINGTON — The auto shop at Oliver Wolcott Tech is full of cars and trucks, all in various stages of repair. It’s also full of students and teachers working together to get them fixed.
A group of juniors and seniors, students of shop teacher Sean Sarta on May 3 celebrated the completion of a repair job for Howard’s Book Store owner John Noelke, who brought his 2002 Nissan Frontier pickup to OWTS. He needed the engine replaced and had been turned down by several garages before he decided to call the high school. “They said it was unfixable,” he said.
