Student Success Story

Hezouwe Ngani Engineering Graduated: May 2018

Hezouwe Ngani is the type of student who truly benefits from a small college experience. Originally from Togo where he was an elementary school teacher, Hezouwe’s first language is French. However, his interest in engineering led him to P.I.T. where he has excelled in all of his classes, including his composition classes. He is polite, inquisitive, very intelligent, and dedicated to being an outstanding engineer. More importantly, he understands the value of hard work, often translating difficult engineering terms into French to gain a better understanding of the nuances implied in English. He is dependable, friendly, and very well-liked by all of his instructors and the staff he has worked with. Even at orientation, he made sure to meet his instructors and develop a rapport with them. In years to come, we will be able to count Hezouwe as one of our outstanding alumni!
