Obed Otabil and Asra Afzaal are excited about what the future holds.
The two recent graduates of Springfield Technical Community College’s Architecture and Building Technology program, will be pursuing careers in that field.
They both were honored with the school’s Architecture and Building Faculty Technology Award, prior to graduation. The award is given to seniors who demonstrated high academic standards, creativity and motivation to pursue a successful career in architecture and building technology.
Both also immigrated to the United States to pursue their dreams. Obed Otabil was born in Ghana, and Asra Afzaal in Pakistan. Here in western Massachusetts they are now on the same career path.
Otabil and Afzaal have both found employment as architectural designers and both will be continuing their education this fall at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
