Meet one of our young Do-It-Yourselfers, Jerry Gutierrez! Jerry is an Los Medanos College student, involved in the Honors Program and Alpha Gamma Sigma, from Antioch. He considers himself a full-time student and part-time dog owner. But, like a good car owner, he enjoys and takes pride in changing his motor oil! At the age of 17, he learned to change his own car oil, including recycling his used oil and filter, from his father. It was an easy and simple process that requires little time and lots of rags! However an important part of changing oil is recycling. He says, “Recycling is important. If we think more of the health of the environment and the other species that share it, there would be less pollution in the world.” He doesn’t know many young DIYers that change their oil but he loves teaching his friends that want to learn!
