Melissa Sheffield came to P.I.T. to start over. After spending years in administrative functions at the Court House, she needed to find a new path and chose P.I.T. and Engineering Graphic Design. Melissa quickly became a star at P.I.T. as she stood out from her classmates for her maturity, her engaging personality and her ability to not only master the CAD and EGD curriculum, but to teach it to her peers. Melissa became a CAD teaching assistant and peer tutor, and upon graduating in December of 2012, she was retained at P.I.T. as a professional tutor to assist the CAD students and teachers. Melissa was selected for a professional, full time, six month CAD internship with a prominent local utility company. Due to her diligence and professionalism, she was quickly hired away from the internship to work full time as a CAD drafter at a professional engineering firm!
