Thor’s LEAP program visits Goshen Middle School

GOSHEN, Ind. —  Students at Goshen Middle School are getting their second look at the RV industry in as many weeks, thanks to Thor Industries’ LEAP program. The program, which stands for “Learn, Engage, Achieve, and Perform,” was created in 2017 to capture students’ interest in the industry, reported The Goshen News.

Schutt and other representatives from Thor Industries taught the students how RV assembly lines work using Lego models.
