Having tinkered around cars with his father and uncles, Luis enrolled in FCTC’s Automotive program as part of his Florida School for the Deaf & the Blind Career and Technical Education course. Early on, Luis’ instructor recognized his potential and enthusiasm. After visiting Bozard Ford and Lincoln, his instructor observed other deaf employees and immediately thought, “Luis absolutely can do this type of work!” Bozard Manager Ken Schafer said, “We are always looking for young, ambitious, automotive repair techs. Knowing that Luis was at FCTC, we knew we were getting someone that has taken the first step towards a career in this field. In the short time that Luis has been with us, he has demonstrated the diligence and the personality that we feel will make him an asset to our company for a long time.” Excepts and photo from FSDB Alumni News.
