CARSTAR Ellis Brothers Collision in Milford, MI, surprised Cooley Elementary School teacher Deanna Barcey with a free auto body repair to kick off the new year.

The Oakland County community was encouraged to make nominations on why their trailblazing teacher deserved a free auto body repair.

“We wanted to express our sincerest thanks to the hardworking teachers of our community by giving back to a deserving educator,” said David Ellis, owner, CARSTAR Ellis Brothers Collision. “Working hard each day to keep students engaged during these challenging times is no easy feat and the last thing teachers should have to worry about is their cars.”

Teachers were encouraged to submit their entries for why they deserve a vehicle repair. Barcey had multiple nominations from her community.

She always has a smile on her face and brings positivity in each day! When we think of Cooley Rocks, her name goes right with that motto!”
