Instructor Joseph Grundvig received a world class technician award from GM. Grundvig becomes one of 700 people worldwide who have received this honor. A direct benefit to the automotive technology program is that vehicles, equipment and tool donations from GM are based on instructors' level of training. Professor Richard K. DeMoss received a Distinguished Service Award from GM for his many years of service to the GM Automotive Service Education Program (ASEP).
The distinguished service award is given to one individual annually in the United States. DeMoss was instrumental in helping start the ASEP at Weber State in 1986. He has since seen more than 1,000 students graduate from ASEP and other automotive programs offered at WSU.
