“I am proud to say I am a student of Penn Foster College. I sincerely thank the faculty and staff for helping me to attain my dream of working with electronics”

“My name is Reuben, and I am currently enrolled in the Penn Foster Electronics Technology Associate Degree. I decided after a lifelong dream of wanting to work with electronics that I should further my education and make that dream come true. I am in my last semester and couldn’t be happier!

I want to be ready for a full-time position in my field. Penn Foster is helping me attain that goal. Telling other people that I am in school helps other young men and ladies realize that they too could further their education and earn a degree.

Becoming a student again, juggling my job, coordinating after office-hour activities and many other duties, amazingly I am able to plug away at my ultimate goal of becoming an electronic engineer. This goal would not work well for me had I not had the option of distance learning. When I sneak in a couple of hours reading when all is calm in the office, or studying while I am less busy, I am making this work for me.

I am proud to say I am a student of Penn Foster College. I sincerely thank the faculty and staff for helping me to attain my dream of working with electronics.”
