Hunter Okerlund: Future Mechanical Engineering Technician

Hunter Okerlund
Occupational Goal: Mechanical Engineering Technician

“I am very interested in the field of engineering because technology changes all the time. There will always be problems to solve and processes to improve.

“I have always liked doing hands-on projects and thinking of different ways to make something better. With my CTE classes in Project Lead the Way, I was able to see whole processes, from the design stage on paper to transferring that design and idea into a computer application, then all the way to building a prototype. I hope to use these classes and experiences in a future college class to further my education, and in a career to improve systems in business and communities.”

 —Hunter Okerlund, Fremont High School
