Harlem High School STAR Student Danny Banks likes to get his hands dirty.
With a 1900 on the SAT, the 17-year-old earned his school’s STAR Student honor and ranks fourth in his class.
Banks hopes one day to put his intellect to use beneath the hoods of cars.
“Even as a kid playing with Hot Wheels I had a love of cars, but more than that, I needed to know how things worked and how cars worked,” Banks said.
But Banks is no mere grease monkey, said Harlem High automotive instructor Nick Hayes, the man Banks picked as STAR Teacher.
