Lamar Consolidated High School Automotive Technology teacher George Dishman is one of only 44 instructors in the nation to be honored at the ASE Industry Education Alliance 3rd annual instructor conference, held July 25-29 in Concord, NC.

The Alliance recognized outstanding instructors working in Auto, Medium/Heavy, and Collision Technology training programs. This year's ASE Alliance Instructors represent secondary and post-secondary automotive programs in 22 states. 

Dishman is one of only five from Texas to be honored in North Carolina.

The ASE Alliance Instructor recognition showcases instructors who have set themselves apart on behalf of their students and career and technical education. ASE Alliance Instructors must be ASE certified Master technicians with at least 5 years teaching experience and must currently work at a NATEF accredited program. They must support their students in work-based learning assignments and participate in instructor training. 

The ASE Industry Education Alliance is a group of organizations under the ASE umbrella providing a career resource from entry-level to retirement for automotive industry personnel and serves as a model for other industries. The ASE Industry Education Alliance consists of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES), and the Automotive Training Managers Council (ATMC).
