Atlanta graduate Justin Mitchell back for a visit with his Werner truck

Justin “Juddy” Mitchell graduated from DDA Atlanta in March and is working for Werner now.  He came to DDA when he was unemployed, and had his electric shut off… and says that his life changed for the better once he graduated. Now, he comes back to campus often to talk with our current students, and he’s even referred a few students to DDA too! Thanks for the visits, Justin! We are very proud of your success!!
