Cooperative Education Spotlight-Victor Genao
Victor Genao finished his junior year like most high school students, wondering where he was going to work for the summer; being enrolled in the Automotive Technology program made the decision of what he wanted to do much easier. He landed a position with Hoffman Ford in Harrisburg thanks to the two years of classroom training he obtained at CPAVTS and Dauphin County Technical School. Victor worked all summer and then rolled his part time job into a Cooperative Education position this school year, attending his classes at Newport every morning and then arriving at Hoffman Ford at noon. Once he is at work, he reports to his bay and gets his work orders for the day: Rotating tires, changing oil, assisting with safety inspections, and performing general car repairs are all part of his normal routine, and Victor takes every job seriously, as though it were his own vehicle. He plans to continue his work experience with Hoffman through the summer and then attend Penn College in the fall. Victor’s desire and motivation make him the successful technician he is today and a model employee in all future endeavors.
