Perhaps most impressive was the knowledge and excitement of the staff. All of the staff I met, including college President Dr. Dennis Massey, department chairman Norman Lilly, instructor Pete Gregory, and TA Al Dawes, showed a true desire to make Pitt Community College’s automotive program one of the nation’s best. From what I saw, they are well on their way to obtaining their goal.
