From Corina Vanek’s article on the Arizona Daily Sun website:

The Coconino High School automotive teacher will have a different car to brag about this year.

Brian Locke was named the 2016 Coconino County Teacher of the Year Wednesday night at the awards ceremony at the High Country Conference Center, an honor that comes with a leased car from Findlay Toyota for a year, complete with wraps that read “Teacher of the Year.”

He also receives $3,000 in cash, a three-credit course at Coconino Community College and is eligible to apply for the state Teacher of the Year competition.

“I am so proud of Brian Locke, who is an extraordinary teacher and is so well deserving,” said Stacie Zanzucchi, the principal at CHS. “He’s such an amazing teacher.”

Do Technicians Need Tips?

Asking for a tip would not go over well with your future customers.

You have probably seen many more businesses and retailers asking for tips during checkout. It is the screen typically seen before you approve the charge. I started to think about what would happen if shops would try asking for tips when customers picked up their vehicle. 

Asking for tips would probably not have gone over too well with customers in the past or in today’s constantly shifting tipping culture. I think it is a question of how people think technicians are compensated. If you are paying 20% gratuity on a meal, it is understandable. But, technicians and shops provide more than a service, they provide expertise and tools that should be compensated through the number of hours billed, not a tip from the customer.
