The ATE Student Success Stories Videos highlight the struggles and triumphs of a diverse set of students in community college settings to document a common theme: technician training has the power to change lives. This episode features Kristin Edwards, a student at Clark State Community College, who thought she wanted to be a math education major until a computer science class changed the course of her career. After more coursework, and an ATE sponsored internship with a local business, shes discovered a new passion and a new path.
