The youngest student in the 2018 SFR Driver’s School, Brennan Stammer, has the youngest instructor, Tommy McCarthy. Brennan is 15 and in the 10th grade. Tommy is 19 and a college freshman majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Business. They speak the same language. Brennan, who is driving No.2 Mazda Miata, is in Group Two, for the more experienced drivers. And by all accounts, he has acquitted himself nicely! He had six years of successful. Karting competition prior to School, and was approved by SFR’s Driver Licensing Steward, Gary Meeker.
When they aren’t on track, in class or debriefing with fellow students, both lads are doing homework. Brennan is studying for a test next week. Tommy is preparing a business presentation for his ‘company’ comprised of fellow business students who facilitate unused grocery goods going to homeless agencies.
