How I got here:
I graduated high school in 2006, and my family inspired me to do my best and never give up. My family has always been in the electrical field.
What I’ve accomplished:
I’m currently (no pun intended!) enrolled in the Electronics Engineering Technology program at East Mississippi Community College, and I’m working on my internship with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway.
I’ll complete my program of study in electronics in May and graduate with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Electronic Technology. Hopefully, I’ll be offered a full-time job as lock operator.
Treat your education as a full-time job and, no matter how hard you struggle, never give up. If you try your best, the instructors will definitely give you their best.
What his instructor, Bob Lovelace, says:
Kyle is an outstanding student who always appears in class job-ready. He’s prepared to meet the challenges I present to each of my students. Life is tough, and so are my classes. I know what it takes. I understand what employers are looking for. If you think you've got what it takes, I’m ready to let you give it a shot. Electronics courses are like the CSI programs you see on television. Take in the facts and come up with logical solutions, present those logical solutions.
