ET Quote

"At the age of 34 the company I worked for had been through 4 buyouts. Job security was a concern for me. I decided I needed control of my future so I looked in to the Entergy Control Technology program at ASUN-Marked Tree. I left the program with the knowledge and experience to begin working in this industry at a high level. My only regret is I waited and didn't go sooner."
