Helping Ethan stand tall
THE Hamilton Standing Tall program continues to support local students in fulfilling their potential and becoming valuable members of the community.
Hamilton local and Standing Tall mentor, Ian Johnson, began mentoring with the program five years ago when he met Baimbridge College student, Ethan Gray.
The 14-year-old was in grade five when the pair built a friendship and found a common interest in Hot Rods, where Ian taught Ethan to weld, panel beat, fix bikes, and take these classic motor vehicles and turn them into drivable icons.
The now grade nine student spends one hour a week with Ian, teaching him skills that he will forever be able to use throughout his life.
