“Carlton is dedicated to excellence and customer service. His open communication with the garages team and beyond and his dedication to being informed of all events happening on campus make him an ideal leader. His innovation comes into play when there is no easy or pre-determined way of dealing with a situation. In these cases, he will always find a way to solve a problem. If he doesn't have an answer to a question, he will find it.”
