Faculty member Bill Young is Schirmer’s UBCTS instructor.

“I’ve had the pleasure of teaching Joey Schirmer for the past four years and watched him grow into a fine young man with excellent skills,” he said. “Joey has always been a pleasure to work with and will be successful in anything he pursues. He is an excellent example of how [UBCTS] can set up a student for successful lifelong learning.”

Kemmerer, Schirmer’s co-honoree, studies in the UBCTS Automotive Collision Technology program.

In addition to her academic honor, Kemmerer took first place in Automotive Refinishing Technology at the Pa. State SkillsUSA Competition. Next month, she will move onto the national level in Atlanta.

Kemmerer augments her studies with a co-op position at Kirban Customs, Kintnersville a marine/automotive restoration shop. That role gave her a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work on a car belonging to country artist and producer Blanco Brown.
