As America marks the 8th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks, one Michigan teacher is still dealing with the legacy of the incident. Vic Gregory had his dream job as a drag car racer. He left that to teach auto shop at his alma mater, Fordson High School in Dearborn, Mich. The school has a high number of students from the Middle East. The day after 9/11, there was a bomb threat and school officials wondered how to keep the teenagers safe.
The teachers and the students had to redefine themselves after 9/11. These days, Vic says that his auto shop program is helping kids get jobs and feel proud of their heritage.
