Brian Riggins, an auto collision repair technology student in NJ, was selected as September's Student of the Month by the Cumberland County Technical Education Center and by his fellow classmates, according to thedailyjournal.com.
Riggins, a junior at Millville Senior High School, attributed his selection to his determination and work ethic, thedailyjournal.com reported. "I've always wanted to be here. I don't like to stand around, so if I'm done with a project, I go back and make sure it's right," Riggins said.
Terry Dolbow, his instructor, described Riggins as, "a true leader in every sense of the word. I am very proud of him; he will be a great asset to the auto body field."
Riggins plans to attend automotive technology for two years and obtain dual certification. Eventually he hopes to open his own garage in Millville.
