University High School CTE Student of the Month - September 2017

Gustavo Gutierrez
Senior - Academy of Automotive Technology

Hello my name is Gustavo Gutierrez and I have been nominated by Mr. Engelbrecht for student of the month of September.
Mr. Engelbrecht teaches advanced automotive technology which is the academy of technology.  I'm in his 1st and 2nd period, and he teaches it with passion, and he is always there when you're having trouble on any certain vehicle in relation to automotive.
My dreams of the future are to be working for a national or even worldwide company related to my field of degree of diesel technology or automotive technology. Also I would like to do the collision repair program.
For me to consider my life to be prosperous, thirty years from now and looking back, I would have to have had finished high school, and college in the diesel technician program, and the Automotive program at Texas State Technical College for me to consider my life successful.
The people in my life that I need to accomplish these goals are my family and supporting friends, also I will need to be ambitious and have support from family members. One advantage that I have is that I grew up with a step-father that worked gasoline cars and trucks and also diesel vehicles. This also has helped me learn how to work on cars/trucks, and know the different parts on the vehicles. And also diagnose different problems
This academy fits into my plans because it gives me the experience I need for the real world and how it's going to be in an actual shop somewhere. I’m really glad that UHS offers the Automotive program, and so many other academies’. UHS will have made me into the successful man I plan to be someday.
