"When I started at Anoka Tech, I had graduated high school 30 years ago. For me, it was a challenge to get back into studying, doing homework and taking tests. I was out of practice, but my opportunity to learn through the internship was very valuable. It was a great opportunity to get hands-on experience that offered great professional benefits."
