Matthew Ingram has been working at Hallmark Toyota for almost two years now. He works in the detailing department cleaning new and used vehicles. Matt works two days a week. On Tuesdays he works alongside his co-workers or his “friends” as Matt refers to them, Rob and Jake and Thursdays with Johnny doing odd jobs in the shop with the mechanics. When asked what his favorite part of the job is, he shared “I like cleaning the cars really good because it makes the customers happy”.
From his start date in November of 2014 to now, Matts wage has risen to mirror his efforts and abilities at the shop. With every new task that he is presented, he continues to meet the challenges and his co-workers have noticed. Rob (Matts Supervisor in the detailing shop) goes on to say how proud he is of Matthew, “Matt has developed into a very integral part of our team. He is a great, fun person to work with!”
In addition to working at Toyota, Matt volunteers at the SPCA once a week. He loves animals! That is why he has three dogs at home Matt says.
Matts passion is hockey, and he plays for the Orangeville wolves. This year he said that he is interested in trying out for the Goalie position.
Recently Matt has been talking a lot about his dream of singing and dancing on stage. Next year he hopes to try out for Community Living Dufferin’s Creative Partners on Stage Drama Troupe that perform each June at Theatre Orangeville.
With all of this, his job, his volunteer work and his hockey, Matt still finds time to spend with family, his “favorite thing to do” he shares. He is at the family cottage every weekend swimming, boating and in the winter on the snowmobile. And a week does not go by that he does not spend a night at his grandparents house. A very busy man with a lot of interests, hobbies and potential
Congratulations Matt! You should be very proud of yourself!
