CenDiv Series Award Recipients
At the Driver's School weekend two awards were given out. One to Jim Dentici and one to Bob Clark for their dedication to CENDIV as driver instructors. Flowers and a card were given to Tracey Gauper as the Administrative Assistant for Jim and Bob.
Here is the content of those plaques:
As an organizing group we seek individuals who can do the job. We seek out those with a proven history; the accomplished, the talented, the best resource matching the task at hand. Once made, you hope your selection is correct and that the results are positive.
As a student your expectations are different. You yearn for knowledge, communications, encouragement and some compassion.
For many years CenDiv has been fortunate in knowing what we sought was found. Two individuals, who, on their own, each fulfill the role, complete the task and made the choice the RIGHT ONE.
Students have been rewarded with proficiency in the how, explanation of the why and expertise in the art.
The teacher’s reward is watching students learn their roles and observing their continuing improvement in competition.
All the members of CenDiv, all the student drivers and our Sport have benefitted from the outstanding dedication and contributions of Jim Dentici and Bob Clark!
