May 23, 2018 – Lewisville High School/Career Center East senior Isaac Contreras has been selected as the Lewisville Area Chamber of Commerce/TIAA May Student of the Month – the fifth and final honoree of the 2017-2018 school year.
Contreras, who is the son of Jose Contreras and Evangelina Garcia, is currently in the Automotive Technology practicum course at Career Center East. He has an internship at Park Place Jaguar Land Rover DFW in Grapevine. Contreras’ strong work ethic, technical skills and professional attitude has thoroughly impressed the management team at the dealership and they plan on hiring him full time after he graduates from LHS.
“I am very proud of Isaac and the recognition is well deserved,” CCE Automotive Technology teacher Doug Emery said. “He has a strong work ethic that motivates the other students around him. I have no doubt that Isaac will be successful in life.”
Contreras accepted the award at the Chamber’s monthly partnership luncheon on May 22 at MCL Grand Theatre in Lewisville. Chamber Board Chair Dan Irvin and TIAA representative Chris Yi made the presentation. Contreras was joined at the event by his parents, his brothers, Alonso Contreras and Victor Contreras, Emery and CCE Principal Jeff Wagley.
“It feels amazing to win this award and to know I made my family and school proud," Contreras said. “It’s a privilege to be recognized as a student who stands out when there are so many of my classmates working so hard and doing great things.”
