Advocate for Technical Education Enrolls at Penn College

Gabriel B. WassermanA Montgomery County teenager, headed for Penn College’s heavy construction equipment technology: technician emphasis major this fall, is calling attention to the sought-after careers represented by technical education careers, he believes,that too many people take for granted. According to an article in the Upper Dublin Patch, Gabriel B. Wasserman, of Fort Washington, a student at Eastern Center for Arts and Technology in Willow Grove, is using his senior project to spread the word. “The students graduating with degrees in engineering, diesel repair, nursing and other degrees that may require some technical education are employed almost the day after they get out of school,” he says. “It’s these jobs that are in demand. Replacements for these kinds of jobs are falling short, and the reason why is the lack of knowledge about the benefits of going to career and technical schools.”
