A Journey Man wireman influenced me when I was a summer helper, part-time.

I didn't think college was for me. I tried it for a year, but ultimately I realized I had a good opportunity presented in front of me to join the apprenticeship. I did and I haven't looked back.

Just that it's a good thing and learning a trade is beneficial in so many ways and that I am proud to be doing what I'm doing.
