Marcos Braz (Azle ISD - SBOE District 11)
Marcos Braz, an engineer, knows that there are plenty of jobs in the industrial refrigeration area but there are not always enough skilled workers. He approached Azle ISD officials about training high school students in advanced physics as it related to refrigeration. He donated all the equipment needed for the refrigeration program and teaches a class free of charge. Now Azle ISD has the only program in the U.S. that is training high school students in the natural refrigeration industry. Six students have already received the Certified Assistant Refrigeration Operator certification.
