Viewpoint: Albany Tech's GOAL winner

Albany Tech student Aamir Greene will be the state spokesman for technical education after winning the prestigious GOAL award.

What a great choice! Greene's road to Albany Tech included two tours in Iraq with the United States Marines.

First in Operation Desert Storm 20 years ago, Operation Iraqi Enduring Freedom a decade later.

After serving his country, Greene returned to Albany and enrolled in the Telecommunications Engineering Technology Program at Albany Tech.

His leadership in the Marines quickly showed at Albany Tech where he was elected president of the Student Government Association and chosen for the school's Achieving the Dream Core Team.

Aamir Greene is proof that dreams are achievable, and we congratulate him and wish him the best in his future!
