MEDINA – Morgan Sullivan, a student enrolled in the Auto Body program at the Orleans Career and Technical Education Center, got a chance to show off her airbrushing skills.

I-CAR is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs. I-CAR approached her teacher, Tom Struebing, to see if any of this students would be willing to help them out by painting miniature car hoods for a golf fundraiser they do every year.

“It’s a pretty big deal because people come from all over the country and this year it will be held in Atlanta,” Struebing said. “The hoods were going to be prizes for the golf tournament.”

I-CAR sent four of the miniature hoods and Morgan was the first person Struebing thought of to help.

“She is very artsy and told me the main reason she took my course was to learn how to airbrush,” he said.

The criteria was that they should reflect golf, but something with the automotive industry because that is what we are.

“She got all four of them done and they look really good,” Struebing said with pride. “She used the names of the sponsors for the brand names of the golf balls. That worked out real well. She has placed pretty high in airbrushing competitions and I think this just validates her decision to come to the program.”
