Miller’s high energy and three decades of experience were on display all over the store, where he shared everything from the thousands of dollars spent on technician computers to pay structures and plans in place to add more service stalls in the detail area when needed.

Senior Conner Evans said he was most impressed by the new shop and the toolboxes that are provided.  “Just for average sized toolbox, not with a school discount, you’re looking to spend at least $6,000,” he said.

Evans is working at an independent shop as a lube tech, and plans to attend Dunwoody College of Technology. “I’m still learning a lot of stuff but I have a good base already.”
