PHOENIX - Jan. 21, 2019 - PRLog -- Trade School Future has awarded its first ever financial grant of $1,000 to a student pursuing a career as an automotive mechanic from Louisiana, Treylon Martin. Treylon was selected out of many different applicants based off of his passion and intention to pursue a career in the automotive industry as he will attend Baton Rouge Community College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This grant is intended to help individuals passionate about automotive technology gain training to pursue a career in this field which is lacking in skilled laborers. Applications for the award, the Future Mechanic Grant, opened during summer of 2018 and closed December 31, 2018. Trade School Future's scholarship committee went through all applications and selected the winner on January 14, 2019.

The student chosen for the grant proved his great initiative for learning through his personal projects. He purchased a wrecked 2007 Honda Civic Ex Coupe and has rebuilt it to be in working condition and is still fine-tuning the performance of the vehicle. Treylon's passion for working on cars has been passed down to him from his own father. Here is an excerpt from his application essay, "Starting off like most kids, handing their father tools, I caught the bug for the automotive field. In particular, rebuilding my first car has truly made me fall in love with this kind of work." His essay goes on to explain all the technical work he has done to get his vehicle back to pristine condition.

Treylon's passion and initiative are what is needed in auto shops all across the United States to fix the skilled labor crisis. Trade School Future's goal with this grant is to empower students like Treylon to gain necessary training to sustain such an immense and demanding market.

Trade School Future was founded with the purpose of connecting ambitious people with the education and careers that they are striving for. We believe in the power of craftsmanship, service knowledge, and we want to empower the next generation of mechanics and technicians to pursue a career that lets them showcase those gifts. Dozens of industries are in need of a skilled trade workforce including government, marine, automotive, freight, and more. We want to help remove any barriers that might stand in the way of talented people joining and leading these industries.
