B’laster – makers of the #1-selling penetrant, PB B’laster – is continuing its third annual search for automotive technology B’laster Instructor of the Year. In partnership with Tomorrow’s Technician, B’laster will again recognize exceptional automotive technology instructors at high schools, vo-tech programs, and community colleges across the United States.
“The COVID pandemic has highlighted that automotive technicians are essential to keeping this country moving,” said Randy Pindor, B’laster President. “At B’laster, we have long believed in the importance of these jobs and the vocational schools where technicians are trained. Vocational instructors pour their blood, sweat and tears into their students’ educations, and we applaud their hard work, day in and day out. It’s our honor to recognize them, and we look forward to hearing more of their stories this year.”
B’laster will continue to choose seven instructor stories to feature on the Tomorrow’s Technician website from through April 2021. Those instructors will be entered into the final round to be named the B’laster Instructor of the Year in May 2021.
