LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Doss High School senior David Lowley has been tinkering, building and fixing cars for years, a passion he shared with his Father before he tragically passed away just months ago.

"I inherited my '66 Mustang from my father," Lowley said. "I love cars, and it's just hands-on, and it drew me right to the program."

That program from GE Appliances is a new way for local students to earn cash while they're in school. It gives Lowley an opportunity to turn his passion into a career.

The new GEA2DAY program will let him work at Appliance Park on Mondays and Fridays while going to school the rest of the week. He'll earn $14 an hour and can earn up to $6,000 per year for college tuition, something Lowley's mother said she's certainly grateful for.

"There is not words on how that makes you feel," Ronda Lowley said. "It makes you feel comfortable, and I'm just so thankful for God to give him this opportunity and for the school to give him this opportunity."

The program is for Doss High School seniors as part of the Academies of Louisville manufacturing program. And area college students can also apply. Another part of the program gives Doss High School students technology for a virtual classroom experience.

There are 150 positions available for entry level manufacturing positions, and students can apply today. To do so, click here.
