The ROC College and Career Center has long had as its mission the dissemination of information to its students regarding the various career and post-secondary opportunities afforded to them. For many, the United States military offers real and tangible vocational opportunities.
With that in mind, the Career Center and the United States Air Force's 369th Recruiting Squadron have focused specifically on presenting to ROC shop students the maintenance and mechanical openings which currently exist. These opportunities provide not only mechanical training and certification, but also college credit, while also providing a foundation for a career either inside or outside of the military.
As a show of their appreciation, the ROC Career Center's Michael Russo was recently presented with a plaque expressing the Air Force's appreciation of this partnership. Furthermore, the ROC Auto Tech program and instructor John Watson was presented with a high-quality tool box wrapped in an Air Force motif.
During the presentations, Lieutenant Colonel Scott Fleming told staff and students not only of his own journey out of high school, but of the many ways he has seen service to one's country also benefit the individual. For those who have not looked into military service recently, rest assured that the Air Force is putting together an aggressive and attractive recruitment package.
