Feuer employee makes U.S. home

Some oaths are so sacred they change lives.  That’s exactly what happened to Jessica Whitfield on August 27 when she swore the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance to the United States of America.

Whitfield journeyed from Germany to America eight years ago to further her education.

“I came here in the Fall 2006 as an exchange student through a scholarship between Congress and the German Bundestag,” she said.

Her assignment was to study at Jackson State University.  Her studies included traditional classroom work and an internship at a small accounting firm.  After graduation, she later found an opportunity to interview at Feuer PowerTrain North America, Inc., a German-based company planting its first American roots in Robinsonville.
