Quote from teacher: “Courtney has been a model student during her two years in the automotive technology program at Penta. She is a responsible self-starter, a joy to have in class and sets a good example for the other students,” said Bob Anderson, instructor of automotive technology at Penta Career Center. “She exhibits fantastic leadership capabilities as president of the SkillsUSA, a student leadership organization, in the automotive technology program. Courtney always goes the extra mile and is the first student to ask for ‘something else to do.’ She is a pleasure to have in class and she brightens the day with her smile and personality. Courtney is at the top of her class and has endless opportunities awaiting her. She will succeed in all her efforts.”
