Lincoln Tech Graduate Travis Cox Wins National Tech Competition
Lincoln Tech’s East Windsor campus is proud to announce that one of its own – recent graduate Travis Cox – took first place in a national technician competition in Raleigh, NC. The 2019 TMCSuperTech competition, presented during the fall meeting of the American Trucking Association’s Technology and Maintenance Council, brought together more than 80 diesel technicians and students for a test of professional skills, written exams and hands-on demonstrations.
Cox was awarded first place in the TMCFutureTech portion of the competition. He graduated from his Lincoln Tech Diesel Technician career training program earlier this year, and now works as a diesel engine specialist for FedEx Freight. He originally enrolled at Lincoln Tech after serving honorably in the U.S. Navy, and connected with FedEx Freight through an on-campus career fair.
“Lincoln Tech gave me the knowledge I needed to start my career, and the Career Services team showed me the different directions I could go,” Cox says. “My current employer, FedEx Freight, was one of the presenters on campus. I can’t thank Lincoln Tech enough.”
“All of us at Lincoln Tech are extremely proud of Travis and the dedication he showed to his career training,” says Scott Shaw, Lincoln Tech’s President and CEO. “To learn that he had won this prestigious competition shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who followed his progress throughout his education. The fact that he’s an honored member of our Armed Forces only makes this achievement more special.”
Lincoln Tech’s Commitment to Veterans Made the Difference
Cox says that as a veteran, it was important to find a career training school that understood the particular needs of servicemen transitioning back into civilian life. He found that at Lincoln Tech.
“Lincoln made [their commitment] apparent with everything they’ve done,” he says. “I would tell veterans, don’t wait. If you have the drive to learn, come here. Make that jump. Lincoln Tech makes it easy.”
