Fort Morgan, CO. 06/19/14. Morgan Community College (MCC) student Bernie Watson saw a need in the College’s auto collision repair shop. Rather, the College was asked to return the auto rotisserie that it had been loaned, leaving the shop without a lift.
“I enrolled at MCC because I enjoy repairing cars,” says Watson. “Last year I purchased a 1965 Mercury Comet Caliente with hopes to restore to its original condition. When I found out that Tim was going to need another auto rotisserie, I put in some phone calls.”
“Bernie and I were able to find several sponsors for the new lift,” continues his wife, Deborah Jorisch Watson, CPA. The Watson’s, together with Joe Fuentes of 3 Amigos Auto Body, Larry's Auto Body Repair and Painting, Griffith Auto Body LLC, and Restorations by Troy, were able to acquire the equipment.
“[MCC Instructor] Tim Grauberger does a great job with these students,” adds Watson. “I don’t know if the kids realize coming into the program how hard they are going to work. But they like Tim; he makes the process of learning engaging.”
