Ever since I got my first car I knew I was interested; when I started working I realized a love for it I never knew I had. I decided to research the trade online and see exactly where I could take this. My dad graduated from Pennco Tech so he and I decided to call to find out more. I loved what I heard when I called and I signed up for the Auto Body Program. I graduated with Honors and began my career! I told Ms. Teresa that I will be back to share my experience with the students still studying.Miahmad F., Automotive Technology
