College of Alameda ATECH Student Wubeshet (Senay) Mekresalassie Awarded Ozzie Day Scholarship

Published November 27th, 2015 in College News

Senay emigrated from Ethiopia to the USA in late 2009. He enrolled in ESL classes at Laney College, then began ATECH classes at COA in the fall of 2013. Since then, he has maintained a 3.93 GPA in his automotive studies, while at the same time driving a cab and also serving pizzas at a local restaurant.  Senay plans to finish his Associate degree at COA, and then perhaps work at an automotive dealership before opening a shop of his own. Senay worked as an auto technician in Ethiopia before immigrating to the USA and, as he says, “Auto mechanics is my passion!”

The Ozzie Day Scholarship is a $500 scholarship, which is awarded by the ATECH Department each semester to the student with the highest grade point average and the most units in the ATECH program. The scholarship was set up in memory of Ozzie Day, the founder of Automotive Engineering and a long-time member of the COA Automotive Advisory committee.


Wubeshet (Senay) Mekresalassie and Wayne Fung, ATECH Instructor

Senay is the recipient of the F15 Ozzie Day Scholarship Award.
