James Cooper has been the Auto Tech teacher here at LHS for 21 years, and the end of the 2017-2018 school year marks the end of his career as a teacher.

  Cooper became a teacher at LHS because he was training high school aged employees to help service cars in “Full Service” gas stations. He saw the help that it provided and that is what drove him to this career.

   When Cooper started teaching Auto Tech 24 years ago, he saw the life skills that it provided the students.

  “My favorite part about teaching is seeing or hearing of students working in the automotive field,” said Cooper.

  Cooper plans on living the retirement dream of fishing, camping, and spending time with his grandkids.

  “I will miss the auto shop here at LHS where we worked on countless cars,” said Cooper.

While he enjoyed the challenge of working on cars, Cooper looks forward to his retirement and can’t wait to see the students he taught succeed.
