Congratulations and best wishes! To one of our GPOIC’s 2019 student, Jennifer Nunez


The great race car driver Mario Andretti is quoted as saying, “Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”This quote sums up Ms. Jennifer Nunez nicely.

From the moment she arrived for classes at the Greater Paterson OIC, we could see evidence of these characteristics. Desire, motivation, determination, commitment, and the unrelenting pursuit of earning her Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification were present from day one. She knew what she wanted to accomplish and was determined to achieve her goal.

We’re extremely proud that not only did she achieve one MOS certification but went further and obtained two more. She accomplished this while overcoming obstacles that would have caused many others to quit, including fighting through injuries that caused severe back pain.

Jennifer’s desire and motivation to achieve excellence will do her well in her next endeavor; She is moving on to her new position as a customer service/office assistant with Liberty Auto Care.  We wish her well and have no doubt that Liberty Auto will be elated they have her on their team, as we were having her in our program.
