FROM DISINTERESTED STUDENT TO SUCCESSFUL BMW TECHNICIAN
Tuesday, Mar 18, 2014
Trenton, NJ – March 18, 2014: The Mercer County Technical School District’s General Advisory Committee presented Brian Davison, Shop Foreman at Flemington BMW, with the 2014 Career Success Award today. Brian Davison is a 2001 graduate of Princeton High and Mercer County Technical Schools’ Arthur R. Sypek Center (Automotive Technology).
As a Princeton High student, Brian was disinterested in school. When he started the Automotive Technology program at Mercer County Technical School, things turned around. He went from never going to school to never missing school. Brian even took 1st place in a statewide SkillsUSA competition for high school students and was offered a scholarship to Universal Technical Institute where he continued his studies. In 2003, Brian successfully completed the BMW STEP Training program and was offered a job with BMW. Brian is currently the Shop Foreman at Flemington BMW where he mentors new technicians.
Brian completed the Automotive Technology program at the Arthur R. Sypek Center under the leadership of instructor David Nash. “Brian Davison is the most well-rounded, skilled technician I have ever had the pleasure of teaching. His natural ability, drive and focus at age seventeen was impressive. I always looked forward to seeing what Brian would become in his professional and personal life.”
Brian earned an Associate of Occupational Studies Degree from Universal Technical Institute where he was a member of the National Honor Society. Davison resides in Ringoes with his wife Erin.
