February is Black History Month. EASTERN is extremely proud of our Black Alum and we are celebrating by focusing on our successful grads throughout the month. Maurice Massey, a 2004 EASTERN Electronics Engineering Technology/Springfield Township High School graduate, is enjoying a successful career as Vice President of the Implementation Services division at CenTrak, a wireless automated location monitoring and environmental monitoring solution for the healthcare industry. The CenTrak system works using various IR/Wi-Fi devices, and records data to build a real-time interface for medical staff and patient workflow. Currently, they are supporting many hospitals across the US with COVID-19 vaccination monitoring. Massey credits his career training at EASTERN for providing him with the skills to succeed in this exciting field.
Growing up, Massey was always opening his gaming systems to see how they worked. He knew he learned best working in a hands-on environment. When he was in 10th grade, he learned about the half-day career and technical programs at EASTERN. He chose Electronics Engineering Technology. He excelled immediately in the class and knew he found his niche. During his time at EASTERN, he also discovered his leadership qualities and served as Class President for SkillsUSA, EASTERN’s student leadership organization, for two years.
