“I have always found it very rewarding to take a shop tour, then on the way home listen to the kids talk about the fact we have the same equipment, and they have been using it successfully for years. I love hearing kids say, “Mr. Gabardi, we have that same machine. I can do that!” This year a record 768 applications were received from 50 states. Nashwauk-Keewatin School District
