Kevin Borchert from Racine, Wis., was recently named the 2013 Mitchell 1 Automotive Technology Outstanding Student during the North American Council of Automotive Teachers (NACAT) conference held in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. Each year, Mitchell 1 recognizes one U.S. or Canadian high school senior for outstanding achievement in automotive technology and auto shop repair scholastics. Borchert received a $2,500 scholarship, a check for $500 and roundtrip airfare and accommodations for himself and a guest to attend the NACAT conference.

Mitchell 1 is proud to recognize Kevin Borchert for his outstanding achievement and strong dedication to pursuing educational excellence in the automotive technology field,” said Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director, Mitchell 1. “With Kevin’s drive and enthusiasm for making a difference in the aftermarket, we know he will one day accomplish his dreams.”

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be a current student majoring in automotive technology/auto shop repair course work and must meet the following criteria:  be nominated by his/her NACAT instructor, maintain a minimum overall 3.0 GPA, have plans to attend (or already be enrolled in) an accredited college or university, and be a U.S. or Canadian citizen.

Borchert graduated from Case High School in Racine, Wis., in May 2012. He is currently enrolled in the automotive technician associate degree program at the Milwaukee Area Technical College and is expected to finish in October 2014. His ultimate career goal is to work as a professional technician at an aftermarket repair facility that installs and repairs performance equipment.

As an avid automobile enthusiast, Borchert tries to attend as many car shows as possible and especially likes vintage muscle cars. He also enjoys watching drag racing, road racing, NASCAR, Indy Car, truck pulls and tractor pulls. “I have been a car nut since I was three years old. I can’t remember a time in my life when engines and performance automobiles have not occupied my entire existence,” said Borchert.
