"When nothing goes right, go left."

    My name is Michael Deisbeck, and I am a senior at William Monroe High School. When I am not working with my academics, you can find me doing one of three things: Watching NASCAR, practicing with the William Monroe High School Marching Dragons, or performing with the Hi-Horse Cloggers. This fall, I will be attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, studying under a dual major program of Mechanical Engineering and Physics.

    My internship is with Bryan Berry, a Crew Chief for JD Motorsports. I will be shadowing him to further my knowledge about what people in his position do both during the race weekend and at the shop. I also will work alongside Ms. Becky Mueller of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

    My research topic is about safety enhancements in NASCAR, and evaluating those that have been made, versus the areas where there is room for improvement.

    My community service will took place on April 28th, 2017. It was an event that brought awareness to the dangers of alcohol, drugs, and other items when behind the wheel this prom season.
