Victor Alonso is the 2018 Sonny’s CarWash College Instructor of the Year. Victor was presented with the Shawn R. Brown Award for Instructional Excellence by Paul Fazio, CEO of Sonny’s Enterprises LLC at a luncheon.

“Victor has been with us less than two years, but he made an impact on CarWash College immediately,” said Bob Fox, CarWash College manager. “From day one, Vic has gone above and beyond. He is always looking for ways to better his teaching methods and make the College as a whole a better learning instrument. We are truly fortunate to have him in our ranks.”

The Shawn R. Brown Award for Instructional Excellence is given each year in memory of Shawn Brown, a former Car Wash College instructor whose life was cut tragically short. Previous winners include Bryan Hage, Jorge Jaramillo, and Richard Ovalles.

The Car Wash College “Rookie of the Year” award was presented to Mark Barthelmass. “I don’t know what we would have done without Mark out West last year,” added Fox. “Mark brings a lifetime of real world washing experience to the students. That’s invaluable! He’s also one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet and a pleasure to work with.”
