I gave Harrison the opportunity to build a deep understanding through relevant projects, which allowed him to fully engage in the manufacturing process. Through his hard work and relentless determination, he produced high-quality products. His exceptional performance mirrored the discipline that he dedicated himself to learn.

Jason Taylor

CNC Instructor, Shelton State Community College

I remember Harrison for his great work ethic as well as his positive attitude and the energy that he brought with him to work every day.  He was a fast learner and was a valuable asset to my team in the time that he worked for me.  You can’t teach someone to have a good attitude, and it was great to have someone to work with like Harrison, who brought a great attitude to work every day.
