Who exhibits grit? As some of you may know in the Delaware Tech community, Frederick Reich graduated in May with an associate of science degree in general science, and now he is back at the College finishing up his medical laboratory technician (MLT) degree. Reich is still receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Md., but retains his positive outlook on life. When asked why he has such an interest in the medical field, he simply said, "I didn't choose this field; this field chose me." Seeing how those in the MLT field have helped him treat his disease has inspired him to study it himself. Everyone at Delaware Tech is thrilled that Reich chose to come back and pursue a second degree from the College. He is a positive force at the Owens Campus in Georgetown, and seeing his smiling face in the hall motivates everyone to keep going, no matter what obstacles are thrown their way. #DTCCPride #DTCCgrit @dtccgrit

In part of National Manufacturing Day, we'd like to recognize one of our programs for Delaware high school juniors and seniors that provides skills and certifications needed to start a career immediately upon high school graduation. Our Advanced Manufacturing Pathways Program has been awarded by the National Council for Workforce Education (NCWE). Know a student who may be interested? #mfgday18 🔗 in bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, we’d like to recognize Ed Ruiz, an instructor in the English Department. Ed says, “My cultural heritage traces back to Mexico, the birth country of my parents Carlos and Gregoria Ruiz. I’d like to thank and recognize them for raising me and my siblings with both traditional Mexican values (loyalty to family and a proud work ethic) and progressive American values (freedom of expression and independence). #HispanicHeritage #hispanicheritagemonth ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, we'd like to recognize several students including Frida Delgado Ceja. Frida is a Business Administration Transfer and serves as president of the Student Government Association. She emigrated from México almost 3 years ago. "I love my Hispanic traditions and I try my best to preserve them. My favorite celebrations are “Mexican Revolution Day” (11/20) and “Día de la Candelaria” (2/02), which is in my birthday!" says Frida. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
