The collision instructors working at career and technical schools and colleges across the U.S. have one of the most important and challenging jobs; to teach and guide young men and women towards becoming a successful asset to the collision industry and to have a thriving and fulfilling career.
“The Instructor of the Year Award recognizes an instructor who has gone above and beyond his/her roles and responsibilities as an educator to become a true leader, role model and mentor of the students they teach,” said Melissa Marscin, director of operations and administration for the Foundation. “We urge industry members and administrators to think of the collision instructors they know who set an example for all to follow and nominate them for this recognition.”
A nomination form is available online at:
An instructor must be nominated by a third party. However, the third party should notify the nominated instructor prior to submitting the application, in order that the instructor can fill out the biographical information and school information accurately.
