Auto Tech Junior Recognized for Hard Work
Dean Brubaker, Waynesville, a junior in Automotive Technology at the Warren County Career Center, said he enrolled at the school to “better myself, and to learn more about automotive repair.” He is a young man with a heart for helping others, and he is glad to use his skills to that end.
He heard that his aunt, Martha Seals, had a problem with her Chevy Malibu. He has a similar car that had the same problem and he determined that it was the intake gasket, so he knew he could fix it for her and offered his assistance. She was so grateful that she wrote a letter to his instructor, Todd Gullett, praising Dean’s competence and attitude as he patiently dismantled and reassembled the engine, taking photos of each step so he would have a record of his work that he could refer to. She also thanked Mr. Gullett for instructing and encouraging his students to become “prepared, confident and productive citizens.” She described Dean as polite, respectful, and more professional that some established mechanics she has done business with in the past.
Dean plans to enlist in the US Air Force after he graduates from high school in 2018. He is interested in getting into the field of cargo hauling.
