Inspired by his heroes - his father and older brother - and their example of strong work ethic and family priorities, Matthew Brown knew he wanted his career to at least live up to their legacies. "My older brother inspired me to become a welder because he always talked about things he had made and the different opportunities a welding career offers," Matthew said.
Matthew re-enrolled at Gwinnett Technical College in the Welding and Joining program, having previously graduated with a degree in Environmental Horticulture. "After my first degree, I took two semesters of landscape architecture at the University of Georgia but quickly realized I didn’t want to sit behind a desk for the rest of my life," Matthew said. "That's when I decided to go back to Gwinnett Tech.
"It may have taken me some time to discover my passion, but better late than never."
