Two years ago the Delta College Foundation Board of Trustees officially recognized the Dr. Robert R. “Dr. Bob” Zimmermann Endowed Teaching Chair Award that Ted and I established. Imagine our excitement when we found out this week that the 2020 award was given to Andrew “AJ” Neumann, Instructor of Residential Construction, for his project “Residential Construction Equipment Training.” AJ will use the funds to become certified as a Telehandler and Mobile Elevating Work Platform Trainer. Congratulations to AJ! My dad would be thrilled. As an undergraduate, he worked as a carpenter on home construction in the summers. He put those skills to work on many home projects and always had some sort of carpentry work to do around the house. Ted and I look forward to the many professional development ventures my dad’s award will fund in the future.
