Video: Heritage

The video “Heritage” highlights three proud parents who each had a child attend LA ORT College.  
Jimmy’s father immigrated to America with the hope of providing a better life for his children.  After developing a love of computers at a young age, Jimmy was able to realize his dream and found a job in his desired field of choice, after earning a diploma from ORT!
Jenny used to dress up as a nurse when she was a child, and when she grew older she decided to follow in her own mother’s footsteps and went to ORT College.  Even while working a day job and taking classes at night she was still able to finish her ORT schooling and is now a working nurse.  
Mark spent 3 years taking classes at a community college, but he was unable to figure out what he wanted to study.  He finally gave ORT College a try and in 2 years he had not only a diploma, but a job as well!  His dad talks about how even though he was not able to get the education he wanted, he is so proud that Mark did.

LA ORT is a group of nonprofit junior colleges in Los Angeles and Van Nuys provide career training in short term courses.
