And to think, I almost quit
Some of you all remember back on 4-7-2010, (OT section 163 pages back) when I posted about going to school? Well after almost 2 straight years and almost giving it up, I am all but done. It has been a journey for sure.
Since this all started, I have had good days and bad. Mostly good, from what I am told. Last Tuesday, May 8, 12,, I was invited to attend the graduation, even though I was not graduating. I was given Honor in the Electrical Tech field. I got a medallion and a paper from the Dean. It appears I have made the Deans list every semester, who would have thought that? I was chosen for my leadership skills and for the way I worked with others.
I was part of a special project in Motor Control class, that has cost the school 50,000 plus dollars. We developed an new set up, where multiple departments can be involved, I am on a first name basis with the Dean and the Dean of student affairs. I have been ask to be on the advisory board for the electrical dept for all future changes and additions. This Wed I am part of a small group taking an entrance elect test for one of the bigger employers in the area. We are to set the base line for the school and they may start hiring students right out of school. Once that test is over, we are to go on site and take the hands on test. We have been told, there is no job offer, we are just doing this for the school and the others that are to finish behind us.
I owe a lot to the members of this board, you all helped me more than you will ever know, the PM's and the e-mails were greatly appreciated, even if I didn't know it at the time.
You all have taught me more than I could have ever learned in school. I learned about family and helping others out. So please, don't take this as bragging, take it as the Thank You, that it is.
If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.
Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
