Veteran Stories - Eugene Margiotti

Eugene Margiotti ’63

United States Navy

Thanks so much for the call regarding the donation I sent to Geneva. But even more important is to thank Geneva College for accepting me as a student after I just com­pleted my military, two year service in the Navy. Thanks to Geneva, [especially] after I was turned down by another college that gave me an entrance exam based mostly on current events after I just completed my Navy career with most of my time on a ship at sea.

With my background in the Navy as a metal smith and four years at Geneva, I was able to land an engineering job at General Motors Aircraft engine facility, which led to being sent to Plant #8, Research & Engineering facility as a Junior Mechanical Engineer, which led to Engineer, then Senior Mechanical Engineer; then to the position as Supervisor in Plant Engineering. I can honestly say that I enjoyed every single day working for G.M.



 

Point of Excellence

For over 50 years, Geneva’s chemistry department has been approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS)—a distinction achieved by only six other colleges in the CCCU.
