"There is many reasons I loved your school. The class was small, the lab was realistic, hands-on training was perfect and detailed and even though we had to study the curriculum you still allowed us to be individuals and express ourselves. As I started my job I felt I knew the basics and more…. Of course I am still learning things every day but your school gave me the foundation to build on.
Thank you for everything"
