Michael Menz

GC Tech
Bethpage UFSD

Michael is driven to succeed. He takes his studies very seriously, attending lectures prepared to contribute, and reporting to the automotive shop in uniform and safety gear, ready to work. Michael’s talent exceeds even the highly technical curriculum at GC Tech, and he has already earned certification from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. He has an extensive knowledge of brakes, engines, tires and transmission systems, and has proven his expertise with the tools of his trade.

This year, Michael committed his time and talent to help with the redesign of the school shop. He contributed to everything from the new floor plan, and the repair and testing of tools and equipment, to painting, and the removal of cabinets, tables and assorted scrap metal. Due to his efforts, he and his classmates will have a new and improved space to learn and practice their trade.

Michael’s peers often look to him for guidance. He leads by example, sharing his knowledge and talent with his fellow classmates. He takes great pride in GC Tech.
