Classic cars help showcase career opportunities at Max Hayes

(Plain Press, June 2007) The West Side Industrial Retention and Expansion Network (WIRE-Net) and D.A. Motorsports teamed up to present the first Career Opportunities Showcase and Cleveland Shoreway Classic Car Show on Saturday May 12th at Max Hayes Career and Technical High School, 4600 Detroit Avenue.

Detroit Avenue was closed in front of the school for the event. On the sunny Saturday the street and parking lot in front of Max Hayes High School filled up with classic cars, muscle cars, and motorcycles.

Cleveland-area students, parents, teachers, and business leaders spent the day touring Max Hayes, visiting current Max Hayes students and teachers, and meeting graduates who now work in the region's manufacturing, building construction, and transportation firms.

Among all the cars and motorcycles on display were race teams from the Grand Prix of Cleveland, Jergens, Inc., and Larry Nance Racing. Former Cleveland Cavalier Larry Nance himself could be found strolling through the crowd. Later in the day, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson showed up to present the trophies for Best in Show vehicles and to meet with students and their families.
