On April 23, 2021 Hernando County Education Foundation (HCEF), school district staff members and administration honored a local business with a celebration and award presentation, for their contributions to the school district this past year.
HCEF chose Dynasty Collision and Auto Repair as the recipient of the 2021 Commissioner’s Business Recognition Award. ‘Commissioner’ refers to the Commissioner of Education.
Dynasty is a family owned and operated business out of Weeki Wachee. The owners are Dave and Shannon Rodriguez. Shannon is also a substitute teacher for the school district.
HCEF Director Tammy Brinker shared details on how the business supports the school district.
“They are committed to education by promoting change and implementing innovative approaches to improve academic performance in students. Dave and Shannon believe when local businesses invest in their school system, learning opportunities are enhanced for students and provides growth for the community.
“The Dynasty Auto Collision family are the first ones to rally support for schools and students whenever there is a need which includes everything from feeding school staff during meetings, sponsoring students to provide everything from prom including dress, Iimo, and dinner, sponsoring fundraisers and volunteering their time during community outreach events in and outside the schools.
“Dynasty supports the international Program, Teacher Appreciation Week, and they collect gently used shoes for students in need. Dave and Shannon pour their love and support into the Hernando County Schools. Dynasty is a true light in our community and their dedication to the HernandoCounty Schools is one that inspires and encourages other businesses to do the same.”
“I do it all from my heart, not to get any recognition,” said Shannon Rodriguez. “This is my home. We’re just lucky to be a business here. We’re lucky to live here and we have the best county.”
