"While I was here at Flight Tech I knew that the people were interested in helping me prepare for my entire career, not just for my two years as a student. Everyone wanted me to succeed - not just to finish the program.

In school and in the professional world I realize that it is the relationships that are important. People succeed, and people support the organization because of support from other people."
