by wishlist April 1st, 2012

I see in today's paper Xak received the Outstanding Business Award from
the MOSPA ( Mi Occupational Special Population Association ) . This is a 6 county organization and " 3 individuals in Shiawassee County received regional awards for their dedication and work in career and technical education programs."

"Owner Xak Zdunic , has been valuable and gracious contributor to the Durand Agriscience Program and FFA"

I'm gonna save this paper and use it to start my first boil on my new evaporator in 13'. That's 1 UGLY hat Xak! :)

Thanks guys, Since that photo was taken i have actually won the state MOSPA award beating out Henry Ford Hospital. For a mom and pop outdoor power equipment dealership like mine to beat a large corporation for that award is awesome !

I am a firm believer that not all kids will go on to college and become doctors and lawyers. For me (a product of classes like this) its a shame to see these classes lost due to budget cuts. I donate all of my used chainsaws, trimmers,and lawnmowers that my customers feel they are not worth the money to repair to the Durand Area Schools Ag Mechanics class. I can tell you there is nothing like seeing those kids smile when i show up with a truck load off REAL stuff for them to fix. In a few year there should be some good Stihl and Polan mechanics out there since that's mostly what i take.

That is VERY nice Xak. Thanks for doing that! You might consider sending that hat along next time you donate...

Good idea Jim, I'm sure the class could use some shop rags! :)
