Luis Hernandez is the winner of the 2020 CarWash College Instructor of the Year Award. Hernandez was presented the Shawn R. Brown Award for Instructional Excellence by Paul Fazio, CEO of Sonny’s Enterprises LLC at a luncheon.

“Luis epitomizes what CarWash College is about. He loves sharing the knowledge he has accumulated in his 20-plus-year car wash career with newer entrants to the business. He is at his happiest when he is helping people,” said Bob Fox, vice president of CarWash College.

The Shawn R. Brown Award for Instructional Excellence is given each year in memory of Shawn Brown, a former CarWash College instructor whose life was cut tragically short.

The CarWash College Rookie of the Year award was presented to Mike Berlin of SLAM CarWash Marketing.

“Mike was hesitant at first about teaching, but once he got his feet wet, he was off and running. His two sessions in our management class are very popular with the students,” said Fox.
