The Night Shift class at the Four Rivers Career Center recently had a 1966 tractor donated to them by KJ Unnerstall Construction in Washington.

The students in the class will work on restoring it. When completed, the Career Center will show it to younger students to help promote the program and the school. The tractor was delivered by Kurt Unnerstall and some of his staff members on Thursday, Sept. 21.

The Night Shift program, led by FRCC Automotive Technology Instructor Dan Brinkmann, deals with anything to do with motors, particularly transportation – cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, boats, golf carts or whatever the case may be.

Students who want to be involved meet every Tuesday and Thursday during the school year at the Four Rivers Career Center from 3-7 p.m. Every session is different, and if it has a motor, the students are working on it as one of their projects.

“I volunteer my time for the Night Shift program, so the students have to earn their way in,” Brinkmann said. “We meet Tuesday and Thursday nights and work on whatever needs to be worked on. It can range from weed eaters to trucks.”

The Night Shift program is something Brinkmann takes very seriously.

“It’s extremely important. The students learn how to be a good employee. We always have a good time, but take it very seriously. If one of the students in the program does something during the school day like aggravate a faculty member and I find out about it, I tell them to leave the program and do something else,” Brinkmann said.

“I also make each student in the Night Shift program cook dinner for the class. Ninety percent of them are going to go to college and have to learn how to fend for themselves. They need to learn how to do things like cook dinner. It’s never anything fancy. We just try to make it healthy and good to eat.”

See a picture of the tractor below with Brinkmann and his Night Shift students with Unnerstall and his staff members.

As part of Homecoming Week festivities at Washington High School, the annual powder puff football game between the senior and junior girls took place at Scanlan Stadium on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

The players dressed in pink and purple jerseys and had an enjoyable time playing in the flag-football contest.

Some of the WHS male students served as the coaches.

The seniors won the powder puff game over the juniors, 15-12.

The powder puff game was sponsored by No Excuses with proceeds going toward that program at WHS.
