The day before his graduation from Salina Area Technical College, Mark Toeniskoetter Jr. didn’t have much time to think about his upcoming walk across the Stiefel Theatre stage to receive a bachelor’s degree in machine tool technology.

He worked until 11:30 p.m. Friday.

Toeniskoetter, 37, has been working full time for Exline for the past six years as a mechanic. The company allows him to work around his college courses and is paying his tuition.

Even though he received his degree Saturday, he will continue to be busy as a full-time employee and student.

More schooling

“I plan to become a machinist for a short period of time, continue to go to school and get my technology management degree,” he said.

Toeniskoetter, a member of the National Technical Honor Society, plans to receive an Autocad certificate next year.
