Student Spotlight — SAMANTHA B.
                                     of York County, PA
                                     Civil Engineering Degree Student

                    “Through my education and experience, I’ll someday hope to
                                     provide advanced services as a professional surveyor
                               and engineer while operating my own business.”

Through the education I have received from Penn Foster, and in addition to my practical experience in civil engineering, I have been able to work for several consulting firms throughout my career. Recently, through my developing skill set I have been able to secure employment with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation as a heavy-highway construction inspector.

Working with PennDOT is something I had never thought would happen this early in my career, and I am doing my part to keep up with the ever-changing demands in the industry by continuing my education in my area of expertise. Through my education and experience, I’ll someday hope to provide advanced services as a professional surveyor and engineer while operating my own business.

Realizing the future of our highways and bridges depends on the course of action we take now, it’s especially important to look forward to what could be 50 or 60 years from now. For me, the future’s just beginning.
