WINTERVILLE—Daniel Coward, a second-year student in Pitt Community College’s Electrical Systems Technology program, recently received a tool set from the Klein Tool Company as a reward for classroom achievement.

Coward’s “Apprenticeship Tool Award” came as part of PCC’s annual “Tools for Success Contest,” which began in 1999 and is sponsored by Klein Tool Company and Greenville’s Womack Electric.

A Greenville resident, Coward posted the top grade point average among his peers in completing a set of core Electrical Systems courses.

Coming in second was Kinston’s John Pickett, who received an amp meter for having posted a 3.0 GPA. Blount’s Creek resident Leon Keyes placed third with a 2.9 GPA to receive a nut driver set, and Winterville’s Alex Jacobson received a non-contact voltage tester for coming in fourth with a 2.4 GPA.

All of the students in Electrical Systems program received T-shirts from the Pitt County Electrical Contractors Association for their efforts in the classroom.
