Two-Year Program Student Achievement Award

Emily Hatsigeorgiou – Washtenaw Community College

Emily Hatsigeorgiou is currently a student at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, MI. In May of 2018 she will graduate with her Associate degree in Automotive Service Technology and will be continuing her education with WCC in the fall, focusing on pre-engineering.

Last year, Emily completed a three month internship with General Motors at their Proving Grounds in Milford, MI. She worked in Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness as a Hydraulic Sled Technician. Some of her responsibilities included preparing components for testing, operating sled software, and working with Engineers to interpret data. Emily also assisted with the research and implementation of a new process to help streamline the movement of materials. The experience she gained at GM has solidified her decision to move further with her education into Mechanical Engineering.

At the end of her internship, GM offered Emily a full time position which she will start in June of this year. On top of her busy schedule with school and work, she is a mother of two little boys named George and Joe. Emily credits her children with the motivation she uses to push herself to accomplish her goals and is excited to continue to make advances in her education and career.
