Mario Cebrero is a senior at Coldwater High School and attends the Collision Repair program at the Branch Area Careers Center. He is the son of Mario and Maria Cebrero. Mario has an On-the-Job Training placement as a painter’s helper at Elite Air Service, under the direction of Sean Gruner and Dennis Jones. His responsibilities include preparing airplanes for painting by sanding, cleaning, and prepping all equipment. He also keeps the shop and work areas clean.
Mario feels his OJT training has helped with responsibility and teaches him how to be a better painter. His favorite part about his OJT job is watching the painting job progress and then seeing the final product. Mario is a member of the Skills USA chapter at the BACC. He plans to compete this year.
Mario’s hobbies include washing cars and lawn work. In the future, Mario plans to pursue training at a business school that will complement his work experience. His ultimate goal is to operate his own body shop.
