After graduating from Saint Joseph High School, I will continue my studies at Franciscan University of Steubenville, pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. I hope eventually to fly private jets for corporations, which I am already preparing for as I have earned my Private Pilot License. Throughout college, I will continue in flight training to eventually my Commercial and Airline Transport Pilot Licenses as well.
