Robertson’s goal as a technician is to do the job right, the first time, and to satisfy the customer to the best of his ability. With this goal in mind, he would like to be able to fix any vehicle, from Audi to Volkswagen. His future plans include returning to school one day to pursue an associate’s degree in the computer field because he sees cars and computers being so closely related and feels this will give him an advantage in his career as a professional technician.

During high school, Robertson received many accolades for academic excellence such as the 2010 Outstanding Academic Achievement Award, 2010 Melvin Robinson Award and the 2010 President’s Award for Educational Excellence. He made the honor roll 2007-2010.
