Hanna's Story

Hanna Gibson understands that an eagerness to learn all aspects of a trade can get you far in life. “I started out wanting to be an architect, but my Dad and Uncle told me that I needed to learn from the bottom up,” she explained. “So, I signed up for a carpentry building construction class at my career center, and while I was there I got to be a part of a Residential Construction Management Competition team, which gave me an opportunity to see all aspects of the building projects and I found I enjoyed the management portion the most.” Armed with this knowledge, Hanna is attending the Pennsylvania College of Technology studying Residential Construction Management to focus on a job in the construction management industry. Her willingness to show up early, stay late and volunteer for whatever the team might need made her a perfect choice as a recipient of the mikeroweWORKS Work Ethics Scholarship. “Coming from a blue collar family, I understand the importance of showing up early and staying until the job is done,” she said. “I also understand that sometimes, putting yourself out there to do the job nobody wants will get your further than doing the ones everyone wants to do.”
