Delaware Tech Serves as “Preparation Ground” for Alumnus’s Career
When he met someone who had successfully completed the MLT program at Delaware Tech, Emanuel Johnson decided to apply to the College and see what the program was all about.
Johnson has fond memories of his instructors. “I will never forget great faculty like Rose Arndt and Jim Barlow,” he said. “I am very grateful for my instructors and advisors; they made me feel welcome.”
His time at Delaware Tech was a learning experience that he has used throughout his career. “Delaware Tech was truly a blessing in my life,” he said. “The College prepared me to work with a diverse group of individuals, and served as a preparation ground that has helped me throughout my entire life.”
Seven years after graduating from Delaware Tech, Johnson returned to Delaware Tech as an adjunct staff member for the Certified Phlebotomy Technician program and member of the Advisory Committee for the MLT Program. “It was really awesome to be able to come back in those roles,” he said.
