Dunn likes shop environment of TSTC Diesel Equipment

(SWEETWATER) - Isaiah Dunn said taking classes in a shop environment is helping him prepare for a career.

Dunn, a first-semester Diesel Equipment Technology student at Texas State Technical College, has always been around big vehicles, so working on engines has come naturally. The Childress native is studying for an Associate of Applied Science degree with the hope of returning home to work.

“Having classes in this type of environment is helping me. I like the hands-on aspect of the program,” he said. “Being here for a short time, I am impressed with the amount of knowledge Ihad before coming to school.”

Having that prior knowledge will only help Dunn over the next few months.

“I can’t wait to get into the upper-level courses and learn even more,” he said. “I know it is not going to be easy, but I am up for the challenge.”

Dunn said he chose a diesel career because of his work on the family farm.
