The lovely thing about Lane is that everybody is willing to connect with you and help you out in any way possible. It really does feel like I have a community of people who care about what I’m doing.

For future students, I think the Aviation Maintenance program will be a fantastic adventure.

If it wasn’t for their support, I’m not sure I would have finished my program.

I believe the degree helped me get the job. It was amazing to be in the program and learn from experienced chefs.

It’s really the best deal in education. That AMT degree is a ticket that says, ‘I have foundational experience and I’m worth it!’

The teachers care about you and they want you to succeed.

I was able to find my way at Lane. I always felt like if I had an issue, I could talk to anybody. It felt like India — the community college environment — like you belong to a family.

The teachers ... Not only were they good at what they were teaching but they saw my efforts, worth and dedication and pushed me in ways that made me better.

I came into my own out at Lane. The more successful I was, the more confidence I got. All of my horizons opened up for me. It’s cool that you can take some education and what you like to do and turn it into a career that you love.

Brian Harper

Harper said people often assume with his sprawling array of airplanes, titles and awards, his life must have been comfortable. But those close to Harper say it has been far from easy and his path to farming far from certain. “At one time, I tried really hard not to be a farmer. But here I am, full circle, no regrets,” he said.
