Emanuel Corral - Hays
Where are you from? Carnegie PA
What sparked your interest in a career in the skilled trades? Sitting at a desk in school for a long time each day was hard for me. I tried the construction block at Parkway CTC. After rotating through the building, masonry, welding and electrical classes, I felt most comfortable in the Electrical technology class. I knew I could not sit behind a desk to work, I had to be using my hands and moving around. This was a perfect choice.
What school will you be attending? I am currently at Rosedale Technical College as of October 1.
What field of study are you embarking on? Electrical Technology
How did you hear about the 2018 Work Ethic Scholarship? I heard about the scholarship when I applied at Rosedale in the spring of 2018
What area of Mike Rowe’s S.W.E.A.T pledge resonates the most with you as you pursue your new career? #4. I do not “follow my passion” I bring it with me. I believe that any job can be done with passion and enthusiasm. To me no job is too small or insignificant. They all can pay the bills in the end. I try to keep a positive attitude while working. I don't cut corners. I find I do better work when I am positive and happy. Most of the time others feed off it and they can be more productive as well.
