Student Experience

“What I’m learning in school is what I’m applying here,” said Braylon Gann, a senior in Overton’s Mechanical, Engineering, and Plumbing program – part of the Academy of Engineering – who is working 16 hours a week at Enterprise Solutions, an electrical subcontractor with a long list of recent and upcoming projects in Nashville and around the country. “I’m trying to be a wet sponge and soak up everything.”
