Breaman Merrill Ford congratulated employee Jeff Barwick on completing training to be certified as a Senior Master Technician with Ford Motor Company. More than 550 hours of training and commitment go into the achievement. Since the award’s inception in 1999, only a small percentage of Ford and Lincoln technicians in the United States have achieved this level of accomplishment. Barwick has been a technician at the Merrill Ford dealership since 1988. Barwick, left, is pictured receiving the pewter Senior Master Technician award from Ford field service engineer Brandon Dixon.
