Who We Are

Richard TraskosRichard Traskos graduated from Crestwood High School in 2004 with a focus in automotive repair. After high school, he joined the work force where he established a successful career in the mechanical and fabrication field.

In 2012, Richard had the opportunity to serve his country and deployed for two years overseas in Afghanistan. He worked for the US Department of State on the International Anti-Narcotic and Law Enforcement contract. While in Afghanistan, he had the pleasure of working with local nationals as well as supporting anti-drug missions throughout the country. While deployed, he began taking online courses from Schoolcraft and is currently working towards a degree in criminal justice. 

Richard has always been a creative writer. His past travels to eight different countries and years of life experiences enhance his creativity and mature writing.

John Solimanto It’s the dawning of a new day and another opportunity in which to excel! John Solimanto lives each and every day by this phrase. Whether on the job, playing sports, or studying at Schoolcraft, John’s tenacity provides him never-ending energy. His future endeavors and dreams involve flying aircraft in the United States Air Force.

Recently, he attended Northwestern Preparatory School in Crestline, California. He learned numerous attributes from this school including dedication, time management, responsibility, and leadership. This school transformed John into a well-rounded person and an accomplished writer.

John has a clear understanding of the English language. In fact, unlike many people, he can diagram exceptionally problematic sentences into simpler pieces. This is an art long practiced and admired by grammarians nationwide. If you are having trouble with sentence structure, diagramming, or anything English/writing related, John is the man to see. With his vast experience and knowledge, he is equipped to make the most daunting of writing tasks a thing of the past.
