WASHINGTON TERRACE, Utah – A unique classroom at Bonneville High School in the Weber School District is recognized as the “top store” in the country.

Adam Arndt’s car class took home honors at a recent event in Las Vegas, Nev.

“The actual trade, that’s what we learn,” said Mr. Arndt. “We currently have 42 projects in our store and I let the students manage them. They tell me what to do.”

Mr. Arndt’s class is hands-on. His goal is to prepare his students to be valuable members of the workforce when they graduate.

“To be able to get past a dealer’s entry level,” he described.

His students take advantage of their unique opportunities.

“I have a ton of certifications just from the classes he offers,” said senior Nolan Brauer. “I know how to make tires, take apart engines – just a lot of stuff.”

In addition to auto repair skills, Mr. Arndt hopes students learn how to become successful entrepreneurs if they ever want to own their own shop or small business.

“Things we learn here are just trust, basic business management,” said Mr. Arndt. “Kids are still excited about what they’re doing.”
