Carter Chevrolet Shows Appreciation to Our Fathers

June 13th, 2013 by

Number 1 DadFathers come in all shapes and sizes but the importance of a good father can’t be measured. Here at Carter Chevrolet, we want to take a minute to thank all of our fathers for raising us with unconditional love.

Growing up, we all have bought our dads the “#1 Dad” t-shirts and coffee mugs that they wore proudly as if it was a one-of-a-kind item. We knew their favorite hobbies and sports teams, so we bought them some novelty item or accessory they didn’t really need. We knew they loved us but we none of us understood how much until some of us became parents as well.

Here’s what some of our staff had to say about their fathers and fatherhood:

  • Lisha Lowell Oshman, Dealer Principle: “The best lesson my father taught me would be the joy of giving to others.”
  • Mike Kretchmar, Controller: “My father taught me a lot of important lessons, most notably the value of hard work and saving money. Without him, I would be a lot less organized and have less attention to detail.”
  • Nichole Schwartz, Dispatch: “My father is my hero. He taught me to never give up and to work hard for what’s important to you.”
  • Mary Womack, Account Payable: “I’ll never forget that when I was in the hospital, my dad was there every day without fail. It meant the world to me.”
  • Kristina Mueggenborg, CNG Assistant Coordinator: “My dad taught me to work hard and to appreciate what I have. He’s the most kindhearted man I know.”
  • Taren Robinson, Contract Administrator: “My most memorable moment of my dad is when we danced on my wedding day. He hates to dance but he danced for me.”
  • Heather Pringnitz, Assistant: “My dad is hilarious. He can always make me laugh, but along with the humor, he taught me the values of hard work and appreciating everything you have.”
  • Worth Lambert, Controller: “Being a dad is great but being a grandfather is even better. You get to spend time with the grandkids and then send them home! Haha!”

It doesn’t take much for a man to have a child, but it takes a lot for a man to become a father.
