Class of 2004
Research Scientist

Athens, GA

"Athens Technical College has given me the skills and knowledge needed to work in the biotechnology field. Because of the extensive hands-on training, small teacher-student ratio, and the wide-ranging scope of the program curriculum, I was able to transition from a student at Athens Technical College into the Biotech work force very easily. I can directly apply my education from Athens Technical College to the job I have as a Research Scientist at Avigenics, Inc. Athens Technical College not only has given me the stepping stone into the bioscience career that I love, but continues to serve my needs after graduation. Dr. Hetzel has been extremely helpful in assisting me to make available the same student worker opportunity for more students. I can't say enough positives about Athens Technical College and the career it has prepared me for."
