Jasper Adams Named Automotive Service Excellence Instructor of the Year

 

Jasper Adams, automotive technology teacher at the Niagara Career and Technical Education Center, has been named to Automotive Service Excellence’s (ASE’s) inaugural class of Instructors of the Year.  

Adams has been teaching at Orleans/Niagara BOCES for 22 years and was recently honored along with nine other recipients at the ASE Industry Education Alliance Instructor Training Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

“The ASE Industry Education Alliance is proud to recognize the best of the best in career and technical education,” said Trish Serratore, president of the National Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES). “These outstanding instructors represent the dedication, commitment and experience our industry needs to train the automotive professionals of tomorrow.” 

To achieve the recognition, instructors must be ASE-certified master technicians currently employed at a NATEF-accredited program, have five years of teaching experience and have placed students in work-based learning assignments such as AYES or another defined internship model.  

Tim Zike, ASE president and CEO said, “The success of our industry will be determined by the future group of leaders just now beginning their careers at CTE programs across the nation. We created this honor to recognize the important role that teachers play in shaping tomorrow’s automotive service leaders.”  

“We are very proud of Jasper,” added Niagara Career and Technical Education Center Principal Anedda Trautman. “It is nice to see such an excellent teacher be recognized in this manner.”
