Cleveland, Ohio, June 5, 2020 – The B’laster Corporation – makers of the #1-selling penetrant, PB B’laster – announced today the winner of its second annual B’laster Instructor of the Year search: Ed Martin from Pickens Technical College in Aurora, Colorado.
In addition to Martin, the remaining Instructor of the Year grand finalists are:
• Adam Arndt from Bonneville High School (Ogden, UT)
• Nic Wages from Jackson County Technology Center (Vancleave, MS)
• Derek Wray from Salem High School (Salem, VA)
“Ed truly cares about his students’ lives and their education,” said Randy Pindor, President & COO of B’laster. “He connects with them through cars and teaches them, of course, but he also takes care of them through his breakfast program. Truthfully, all the finalists demonstrated the ‘outside the toolbox’ thinking we look for in this program. It’s inspiring to know these vo-tech instructors are out there educating the next generation of wrenchers.”
B’laster is presenting Martin with B’laster products for his classroom, a $1,000 donation to the school’s automotive program, a $500 Visa gift card for Martin, and a one-of-a-kind B’laster Instructor of the Year trophy.
“The B’laster Instructor of the Year program is near and dear to our hearts at B’laster,” Pindor said. “We are proud to support these instructors in their important work inside their classrooms. Vocational education is a critical resource in communities across the country and deserves all the support it can get.”
Last year’s winner was Joe Mendola from Gaither High School in Tampa, Florida.
