15 Minutes with Andrew Bertka interviewed by Derek Swartzlander

Icon: You graduated from Bluffton in 2019. What have you been doing since then?
A couple things have started in my life. College is one of the biggest changes to happen to me. The change in class structure and the atmosphere is levels above what it was in high school. I have also started working with a friend of mine from work, Gregus Smith, at Schoolhouse Electronics. I have been very thankful for the work he has provided for me to help my way through college.
