The early education I received from PCGS, laid a strong foundation and greatly influenced my success today. I have fond memories of my schooling years and am always very proud of my association with PCGS. One of the most rewarding moments is to see my mentees becoming very successful! PCGS gave me a great education and now it is time for me to reciprocate.
