Wynne AR. *****
Unlike a lot of my peers, I chose to pursue higher education later in life as opposed to going to college right after high school. However, I feel like this decision has given me an advantage. Through my career I have learned where my talents lay and the type of work that I enjoy. I have also gained a great deal of knowledge and experience that will help me in my chosen field of study. Currently I am a student at East Arkansas Community College and I am pursuing a degree in engineering technology. I will graduate this spring and then hope to pursue a bachelor’s degree in engineering. I am a very motivated individual and I work well on my own or as part of a team. I have a considerable amount of leadership experience and I excel at finding the most efficient way to perform tasks.
