Travis Jumper's Success Story

Travis Jumper

Travis's Story

Where you are from?   Carlisle, Pennsylvania

What sparked your interest in a career in the skilled trades?  I got interested into the trades, because I would help my grandfather fix things around the house when I was younger, and that was something that I enjoyed doing.

What field of study are you embarking on?  I am going into the field of carpentry/ remodeling.

How did you hear about the 2019 Work Ethic Scholarship? I heard about the scholarship through my teacher who taught me at the vocational program I was in throughout my high school career.

What area of Mike Rowe’s S.W.E.A.T pledge resonates the most with you as you pursue your new career? Statement number eight resonates with me the most, because I believe that there so many possibilities to do amazing things that everyone should be able to find that one thing instead of complaining about where they are at now. Nothing changes if you don't act on something that could change your circumstances.
