After 36 years of teaching auto body collision technology at Minnesota State College Southeast in Winona, MN, Tom Brandt is handing over the keys to the college’s auto body shop at the end of the spring semester.

Brandon Boynton, who graduated from Brandt’s program in 2014, is the new auto body instructor. For the past year has been teaching along with Brandt, learning the tools of the trade from his former teacher.


“I knew that the best way to have a smooth transition when I retired would be for the college to make a commitment for one year to onboard a new instructor,” said Brandt. “That the hiring committee selected a past graduate of the program was extra special for me.”
