Abdelhafid Saddiki, a second-year student in the T-TEN Atech program at the College of Alameda, was awarded the Ozzie Day Scholarship today.

Abdelhafid is 28 years old. He was born in Morocco and studied at the Institute of Vocational Automotive Training in Morocco, worked at a Kia dealership and helped his brother set up an independent garage before coming to the United States in 2011. He enrolled in English classes when he first arrived and, after about six months, he started taking Toyota T-TEN automotive classes at the College of Alameda. He is now working at a Toyota dealership and will complete the COA Toyota T-TEN program at the end of May. His goal is to return someday to Morocco as a master technician or an engineer.

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.
