First Co-Op Employee Hired at Edwards:

A Co-Operative Education Program with Antelope Valley College is underway at Edwards Air Force Base in California, and the 412th Maintenance Squadron’s propulsion flight recently hired its first co-op employee. SrA. Jason Hernandez reports that the employee, aircraft engine mechanic Michael Cermack, came to Edwards through the college’s airframe powerplant program. The co-op initiative requires the students to maintain a 2.5 grade point average while they work 20 hours a week. If they reach a total of 640 hours and have proved “they meet our needs, we can hire them,” says Larry Wolford, with the 412rh Maintenance Squadron propulsion flight.
