Thor Motor Coach has been helping with an RV construction program at Northwood High School in Nappanee, Indiana for the past five months.
The Indiana Board of Education approved the program in December as one of the state’s new pathways to graduation. It gives students a chance to develop skills used in building recreational vehicles, such as working with power tools, electrical wiring and plumbing.
Damon Hummel teaches the specialized course. He worked with Stan Murphy, purchasing manager at Thor Motor Coach, to teach students how to run plumbing lines through a mock-up built at the school. Thor diesel engineer Andrey Maryuschchenko and plant manager Robert Querry were also involved in working with the seven students in the program.
Next year, Hummel has 17 students already signed up. He plans to introduce them to electrical wiring.
