The award recognizes the achievement of a secondary or post-secondary collision school instructor who has gone above and beyond their role and responsibility as an educator to become a true leader, role model and mentor to the students they teach.
“I really found out the caliber of teacher Brian is when I was his mentor,” said Tammy Divens, a registered nurse and new visions medical teacher at the GST BOCES Cooper Education Center.
“Brian works tirelessly to provide the most up to date skills and education for his students.”
The collision instructors working at career and technical schools and colleges across the U.S. have one of the most important and challenging jobs, teaching and guiding young men and women toward becoming a successful asset to the collision industry and buidling a thriving and fulfilling career.
