Automotive Master Technicians become Mentors
OSTC-Northeast Automotive Technology students Anthony Paz and Owen Zabritski are both interning at Matick Buick GMC in Southfield.
Anthony is interning under OSTC-Northeast’s highest achieving automotive program alumni, 2018 graduate Devin Bailey, while Owen is interning under the youngest ASE Master Technician alumni, 2022 graduate Kenyon Knight.
“The program has changed my life! As a first-year senior I planned on working as hard as possible and it has paid off. I’m working as a tech assistant at Matick GMC and plan to continue down this career path. Without this program and Mr. Willis’ expert guidance I don’t think any of this would be possible,” said, Owen. “Incoming students must be prepared to learn, work, and have fun. This class is a ton of fun and provides many growth opportunities. Automotive Technology is not just another class it’s an entry point for a lifelong career.”
“I would tell incoming students that if they want a career in the automotive industry, they should take the program seriously because the strategies we use and the resources we access will no doubt send them on a pathway to success,” said Anthony. “The program has helped me in many ways such as receiving an opportunity to go out in the industry and by following the program’s strategies I'm able to start my career from an earlier point in my life than if I were to go to a university or trade school.”
