Road Rebel Car Club donates tools By Christina Crea The East County Journal Every year, the Road Rebel Car Club donates a scholarship of about $1,000 to a Mossyrock senior student going into the technical field after high school. However, this year no one qualified. But that didn’t stop the road rebel’s from finding an alternative. George Barnett, owner of Mossyrock Auto Value and member of the club for four years, said the 25-member club decided to donate $1,500 worth of tools and supplies to the Mossyrock High School’s Career and Technical Education Program (CTE). “We didn’t have a candidate interested in going to a trade school or working in the industry, so we (the club) thought it would be a good idea to donate some tools because they could be utilized by all students this year and years to come,” Barnett said. Barnett, who has owned Mossyrock Auto Value for 28 years, coordinated with Mossyrock High School’s CTE and woodshop teacher Judd Hankins to find and order tools and supplies the school needed. “Our agriculture teacher, Judd Hankins, will be able to put them (tools) to good use as he provides our agriculture students with an excellent background in mechanics,” said Karen Ernest, superintendent. “The Mossyrock School District has a strong vocational program in business education, computers, woodshop and agriculture. We are fortunate to have a community

our location. The kids are so excited and get to shop for Christmas.” Look-A-Rama has been a Mossyrock tradition for years. “It’s amazing to see the little kids finding things for their grandma or grandpa,” Wilson said. “We always carry extra money in pockets in case a kid only has 50 cents (for a $1 item), so we might say there has been a sale and dig into our pockets. You can’t imagine the look on their faces, it’s priceless and that’s what makes this event worthwhile to all of it.”   According to Wilson, she always appreciates the support from the communi-
