Jeremy Miller, of Dierks, Arkansas, is a graduate of the Power Technologies program at the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana (UAHT). He chose UAHT because he received the AEP/SWEPCO Power Plant Technology Scholarship and the college was one of the few schools in the region to offer this unique program.
“The Power Technologies program at the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana prepared me for my job as a Predictive Maintenance Technician at the John W. Turk Power Plant. The program gave me the hands-on experience I needed in the operation and technology involved in power plant processes. This program not only provided me with a great education but also taught me an excellent work ethic, and the ability to adapt and overcome problems that a plant might face. UAHT provided me with the skills I needed to be a world-class employee in the field of power technologies,” said Miller.
Miller recommends that all students, male and female, explore the field of power technologies. “The Power Technologies degree at UAHT prepares you for many different types of jobs. Every industrial facility generates power or relies on power to operate. There are opportunities for good paying jobs in a variety of fields with this training,” he said.
