The Polytechnic taught me how to work with people. This is important, because people are the driving force of the world.

Thanks go to:

  • My mom, Shannon Pope: For always working hard to give me the best life and giving me the opportunity to go to college. My om has always been my biggest supporter and greatest leader; I will never be able to repay her for the great life that she worked so hard to give me.
  • School of Construction Management: For giving me friends and a home here at Purdue. They gave me the tools I needed to succeed in the big leagues and I will always be grateful for them.
