Apprentice Coordinator Lisa Tedesko Received this Wonderful Note of Thanks From a Student


Hi Mrs. Tedesko!

I don't know if you remember me, but I was in the PaICE internship program before graduating in 2018 and I interned at TechStart with Gregory Carlson. While there, I also got to know the others involved in TechStart including Brad Rowland with FSLogix. Brad introduced me to Chris Koehn, who is the co-founder of Abacus Solutions Group - an IT company that works with the army, and after hearing about me from Gregory and Brad offered me a job at the Second-61 tech service desk that is currently being set up here in Cañon. For someone who adores any and all things tech, being offered a job like this is an absolute dream.

But, to get to the point of this email, I wanted to thank you. Thanks to the experience I gained in the PaICE program I've been given an amazing opportunity. As someone fresh out of high school with no college education, this is something I could never have expected, let alone believed could happen, were it not for you and the PaICE program. I'd like to meet with you sometime to thank you in person and share a bit more about this wonderful opportunity that I've been given if you'd like to hear more.

I can't thank you enough for what you've done through the PaICE program and I just wanted you to know that it has certainly changed the course of at least one former student's life for the better.
