Mr. Peter Morris
Mr. Morris is the Auto Mechanics instructor for RHS with 16 years experience in the position. While attending NIU and JJC, he gained his experience in the field by working for mulitple shops and construction companies as a mechanic during the summers. These positions allowed him to bring real world examples and skills into the classroom. After teaching for a few years Mr. Morris began introducing building race vehicles as part of class to improve the hands on experience for his students. These vehicles have been successful at local tracks, and many of the students that worked on them have been successful in the automotive field post high school. Students from the program have gone on to work for Navistar, Cummins, GM, Bosch, and many other dealerships and shops.
