Benjamin Kompkoff is pursing an associates’ degree in Diesel Mechanics at the University of Alaska Anchorage and is expected to graduate in 2023.
Ben’s commitment to his studies and his hard work in the community of Tatitlek, positioned him as a strong candidate for the internship program. His favorite part of last semester was attending an operator training course for forklifts and bobcat skidsteer loaders. Ben’s favorite part of his internship is being able to learn basic building maintenance and touching up his work. Ben plans on using his education in diesel mechanics to become an operator at TCC in Valdez, AK.
“Thank you to The Tatitlek Corporation for the opportunity to learn basic maintenance all while pursuing my education.”
