Industrial Arts, Leuzinger High School

At One Time, The Olympians Could Proudly Point to An Extensive and Well-Run Industrial Arts Department. Two complete woodshops were run by Mr Freeman and Mr Hinojosa. Mr Lipton ran an every-busy graphic arts facility and drafting classes were handled by Mr Kovach. Many Olympians learned the basics of automobile mechanics in the auto shop with the expertise of Mr Williams; We learned how to change tires, replace brakes, perform tune ups, and rebuild cars!
