Featured STL Student for June 2021
Hi there! My name is Halle Roach, I grew up in a small town called Bowling Green, MO. which is about an hour and 45 minutes out from the STL Centriq location! Throughout my years of school, I was continually active in FFA and went to State competitions. Graduating high school, I found myself working at horse barns cleaning stalls and shortly after working at a warehouse where I decide I wanted to have an actual career.
Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: While working at the warehouse I was told I should investigate Centriq because of my quick learning abilities and skills, so I started to investigate it. Growing up I had always been intrigued by technology, so it sparked my interest more and more as I started looking into it. I didn’t want to attend something like a 4-year college, so a 4-month class seemed perfect for me as well!
Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A:I would have to say that my favorite course so far is the MWSA (Microsoft Windows System Administration). One of my favorite things about it is the fact that it is quite easy to understand along with how it helps you piece together why and how everything is interconnected.
Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
After Centriq I hope to begin a new career in the IT industry and expand my learning even more out in the field. I want to move to Kansas City to get a taste of city life along with making and creating future companions, both as friends and business partners.
Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
I enjoy horse back riding, listening to music, playing video games, and reading in my free time. I tend to find myself also out on the ice when winter rolls around and the ice-skating rinks are open.
