Celebrating Education - Bob Soto completes his BSEE
Tuesday, August 18, 2015 written by Northern Digital
This weekend I had the great pleasure of witnessing the culmination of a dream that one of our colleagues had come to fruition as he walked a stage and received recognition for completing his BSEE. As many of you know firsthand, it is difficult enough to complete a degree program as a young person not yet entangled in the thralls of a career; but very rarely does one have the tenacity, self-motivation, perseverance, and a bunch of other adjectives, to obtain an engineering degree late in life while smack dab in the middle of managing the operations of a company. I am proud to let you know Bob Soto has done this.
Four years ago, Bob and I had a conversation about him returning to college in an endeavor to obtain his engineering degree. While he already had completed an Associate’s degree and had spent four years in an electrical apprenticeship program earning a journeyman electrician statues, his goal had not yet been completed. And to be honest, four years ago his dream seemed unlikely; yet Bob has shown the grit that makes NDI people excel in life, as well as in the work place. Thank you Bob for your years of service here at NDI, and thank you for showing us that we can accomplish great things when we put our mind, as well as a little elbow grease to it!
