MOORESVILLE (WSIC) – Ivanka Trump was in Mooresville Wednesday to talk vocational education and recognize first responders who deployed following Hurricane Florence.
First-up was NASCAR Tech. The President’s daughter and advisor toured the school with Daytona 500 winner Austin Dillon, team owner Richard Childress and others. She talked with students and tried some of their tools, like the engine dyno.
The school says it’s important to educate parents and students about trade opportunities.
Next stop for Ivanka Trump was Mooresville Fire-Rescue Station Five where she met with members of the swift water rescue team who were dispatched to eastern North Carolina following Hurricane Florence. Chief Curt Deaton says it’s an honor to have her recognize the group.
Battalion Chief Rob Colvert was among those sent to eastern North Carolina and echoes the chief’s comments. Mooresville Fire-Rescue sent a crew of fourteen people to help in Kinston and then Brunswick County following Hurricane Florence.
