Kenzie has recently joined our team at Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville as the  Manager of Online Sales. She is originally from Wisconsin and lived in Nashville for the last four years, but she recently settled into midtown Atlanta. 

In her spare time, she enjoys playing volleyball every Sunday at Piedmont Park with her Atlanta league. Kenzie attends Northpoint Church and enjoys spending quality time with her pets at home. In addition to her love of EDM music, she is a proud advocate for Buffalo Wild Wings’ buffalo ranch chicken wraps.  Her appreciation for Mountain Dew is the cherry-on-top for this new Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville employee. 

New Employee Spotlight: Dean Murphy

July 9, 2015

dean AVFFDean has been working as an Internet Sales Consultant at Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville for about two months. He is originally from Durban, South Africa, and he has been living in the U.S. for two years.

Living in South Africa, Dean worked in car sales, management, and general management for a total of 27 years. In his spare time, Dean enjoys watching rugby, playing golf, and spending time with his wife.

“I came out here on a holiday,” Dean explained when asked why he originally came to America. “This was a golden opportunity to stay.”

When asked what the major differences were between U.S. dealerships and South African dealerships, Dean explained that the U.S. is faster with sales, many times completing the process within one day. Additionally, South African dealership showrooms are built much bigger in order to show off the cars indoors rather than outdoors.

When asked the differences between American and South African cuisine, Dean joked, “If the food is taking too long at a restaurant here, people get upset about it. If the food is taking too long in South Africa, that’s great – you just drink more!”

Congratulations to Gail Franz, 2015 Fayette County Teacher of the Year

April 24, 2015

Each year, Allan Vigil Ford of Fayetteville is honored to sponsor the annual Fayette County Teacher of the Year awards. Our teachers make such an impact on shaping young minds into successful and productive members of our community and we are thrilled to offer them recognition for their hard work.

Congratulations to the 2015 Teacher of the Year, Gail Frantz, and our semi-finalists Sean Benner and Lynn Bruschetti. Your work is appreciated by all!

Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 1.51.34 PMGail Franz
2015 Fayette County Teacher of the Year

Math/Science at Peeples Elementary
Gail Franz was born destined to become a teacher. As a young girl, she enjoyed playing “school” in the basement of her childhood home. “The Lord had a plan for me, and He made it very clear. I knew it was my calling in life, and never once considered another career. After 30 years of teaching, I still have the same passion for teaching that I had in that cold, concrete basement,” she says. Franz makes math and science relevant and fun for her students. Not only does she share her enthusiasm for the subjects, but she also looks for avenues that will make instruction engaging. Technology is an integral component of her lessons, allowing students to research, create, and collaborate with their peers. “I want my students to leave with an attitude of inquiry, a skill important to be a good scientist, mathematician, student and citizen,” she says.

Sean Bennett
Runner Up 2015 Fayette County Teacher of the Year

English/Language Arts at Alternative School
Sean Bennett says that, for him, teaching is more of a calling than a career. A high school friend, who is a lawyer, used to constantly ask him why he did not pursue a career in law or politics. “After asking one time too many, I explained to him that I became a teacher so that he could become a lawyer, and that was my greatest calling in life,” says Bennett. Bennett’s teaching philosophy encompasses individualizing education to meet the learning needs of each student, empowering students to be life-long learners, and creating a safe place for students to learn, discover and grow. “I have spent the vast majority of my career working with students who were at risk of not being successful because of a multitude of factors, but there is not a single student that I have met that is incapable of reaching their full potential,” says Bennett.

Lynn Bruschetti
Runner Up 2015 Fayette County Teacher of the Year

Language Arts/World Literature (Gifted) at McIntosh High
Lynn Bruschetti primarily credits her mother, who taught at a mission school in New Mexico in the 1940s, for influencing her decision to become an educator. Bruschetta says that teaching is not a job that is neatly packed into an eight-house workday. She is constantly looking for ways to challenge her students to think independently and develop their own conclusions and viewpoints. Treating every student as a future leader, she devises weekly situations where they practice the skills of true leaders: analysis, synthesis, creativity, and empathy. The later skill, apathy, is one Bruschetta feels is most important. “If students are to make an accurate analysis of any given situation, they must be able to empathize with all parties involved. It’s difficult to place oneself in another’s situation, but that is what leaders do,” she says.
