Michael Hamrick 2014 Work Ethic Scholarship Recipient
We received this update from Michael’s proud mom:
He completes his Maintenance Electricity & Construction Technology program at Triangle Technical Institute, Erie, PA this Friday, February 6, 2015 ! We are so proud of him and how well he has done. We sincerely appreciate the generosity shown by Mike Rowe, the mikeroweWORKS Foundation , and their special supporters. This has been a really unbelievable blessing and experience for our family. You always read or hear about these awesome experiences that happen – always to other people, whom you’ve never met – but what a privilege to be on the receiving end ourselves. Michael will be graduating with no loan debt for his training. We really can’t thank you enough! May your foundation continue to grow and help others as it has helped us. Marlene Hamrick
Congratulations to Michael and we wish him continued success with his new career!
Michael Hamrick is a great example of someone following opportunity and bringing his passion with him. Michael knew he needed a career stable enough to support himself and the family he wanted someday. He also knew many people who graduated with four-year degrees and mountains of debt but couldn’t find work. So Michael took a different path. He studied Electrical Maintenance at Triangle Tech in Erie, PA and in 2015 he graduated debt free! He’s been gainfully employed ever since.
Today, Michael has the career he knew he needed. He is a full-time Maintenance Specialist at Truck-Lite Co., LLC and since Michael is now engaged, I’m guessing that family he always wanted is not too far on the horizon. Congratulations Michael! We wish you all the best and continued success!
