Multiple Career Options - One Clear Choice
As a high school senior at Randall High School in Amarillo, Texas, Austin Stashi had options. One of those options was to attend a traditional four-year university to pursue an engineering degree. Already involved in National Guard, a future in the military was a viable option as well. He even considered being in law enforcement or being an EMT. But it was his passion for tinkering with engines that ultimately led him to Bruckner's in his hometown.
