There was a tie for the top student this year, so White awarded a wheelbarrow filled with $500 of ACE tools to each student. This year’s Golden Hammer Awards went to Jerry Morrison of Tecumseh High School and Jepothy Quirk of Macomb High School. Jerry’s dad, Jerry Morrison Sr., won the second Golden Hammer Award at GCTC 20 years ago, in 1989.
