Airman First Class Jeffrey L. Pope, Graduate of Arc Tech Academy, came back to ArcTech to speak to our students. His inspirational words left a strong impact on the current ArcTech students.
Here is his message:
"I’m here to tell you that graduation IS possible. Everything is in your hands and every decision you make from here on out is all up to you. What made me realize that I needed to improve was a quote my godfather constantly used whenever I told him I would do better, “Don’t Talk About It, Be About It”. That quote motivated me to graduate high school and become a hardworking member of the United States Air Force. I tell people all the time to have a plan and want that plan to work or else you’ll get nowhere in life. So just remember this is your opportunity, your life is in your hands and only you can make something out of it. As long as you believe you can do it your potential will always be sky high. Hold yourself to a high standard and show those you love that you’re gonna be just as successful as they expect you to be. If I can do it you can too!"
Congratulations Airman Pope, keep up the GREAT WORK!
