We had a student who was going through some personal problems and almost didn’t finish the program. We continued to encourage him until he finished. When I spoke with him last week, he said he’s working his dream job and he’s exactly where he wants to be. This student is a talented electrician and has been paired with a thriving company that will develop his skills and equip him for greater success!
