SAN ANTONIO - Brandon Nicholas Mazac was born and raised in San Antonio and has lived on the south east side of town his entire life. He graduated from Highlands High School and did one semester at St. Philips for an aviation course while he was in high school.





    He’s been married to his wife Kimberlee for a little over 3 years and has a beautiful 2-year-old daughter named Mackenzie and is expecting another child in June.
    Mazac and Kimberlee went to high school together but never really talked to each other. Years later he worked with her dad at another electrical shop, whom he became very good friends with. “One weekend I told her dad I was going to go fishing and he asked if I wanted to go fishing with him on his boat. Later that night I got a text message from Kim asking if it would be all right if she went with us. I told her yes, of course, and that was the day we started building our relationship.”
    After that weekend he would go to her house almost everyday after work. They have been together for a little over 6 years. “She is one of the best people I have ever met. She and I enjoy the same things in life and we love doing as much as we can together, as a family.”
    Mazac does a lot of tinkering. “I am always building things or fixing something that is broken. My daughter is always right by my side. She wants to help with anything we are doing. She is very smart and picks up on things right away.”
    When he is not tinkering with things,
he spends a lot of time with his family. He enjoys going fishing every chance he can, and during deer season, he is gone every weekend to the family ranch in South Texas.
    Mazac refers to his grandpa as his biggest role model. “I spent so much time with him and he taught me so much. Things like woodworking, fixing almost anything, working on vehicles, whatever he was doing you could bet I was right there with him.”
    In the electrical industry he says his late father-in-law was his mentor. “There have been so many people who taught me different things, but he taught me most of what I know. I worked closely with him everyday for many months and I saw him everyday for the past six years.“
    Mazac started working at Gray Electric in Sep. 2012. A year later he began the South Texas Electrical JATC apprenticeship program and from the very beginning of the program Mazac wanted to win the Apprentice of the Year award and he did just that.  Mazac was just awarded the 2017-2018 Apprentice of the Year and will go on to compete at the regional apprentice contest in Albuquerque, NM.  -cmw
