“I am a second-year student in the Heavy Equipment Operations and Mechanics major [at Pennsylvania College of Technology, Williamsport, Pa.]. While this is a three-year program, I plan to enroll for additional time to earn additional degree and certifications in my field of study. After graduation, I am eager to get to work utilizing the skills acquired in part to your generosity. I am now one step closer to achieving my goal. This scholarship lightened my financial burden, which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school: learning,” says Cory Johnson, RC Watt, North Huntingdon, Pa., who received an ARA Foundation Trade School Scholarship worth $2,000 for the 2022-2023 school year.
Nearly $134,000 is on the line. Apply here by the March 7 deadline.
