From Karl Zinke’s article on The Examiner website:

Jonathan Robertson wasn’t even sure if he was interested in automotive work when he decided to take a course on it at the Fort Osage Career and Technology Center.

“I first kind of took it as, ‘OK, I can save a few bucks by working on my own cars,’” said Robertson, who took CTC classes while earning his diploma at Blue Springs High School.

His father, Don, had first started Jonathan’s interest in cars. Quickly, though, his CTC instructors Jeff Green and Bill Lieb noticed he had a great aptitude for repairing vehicles.

“Both were like, ‘You can make a career out of this,’ said Robertson, who graduated with an associate degree from Metropolitan Community College-Longview in May. “They pushed me and pushed me, and helped me get my job where I work currently, at Cable-Dahmer Chevrolet in Independence. I went through the (General Motors) ASEP (Automotive Service Educational Program) process, and here I am.”
