He left his homeland when he was 22 years old in order to pursue an education in the United States. He landed in Tempe, Arizona, and enrolled in an English language immersion course. Not long after, he entered the College of Engineering at Arizona State University. Coronel graduated in 1985 with a degree in mechanical engineering and has spent the last 32 years working in the aerospace industry. He’s traveled back to Venezuela several times over the last three decades and has come away with an even deeper appreciation for the opportunities the U.S. has afforded him. Coronel and his wife are the proud parents of five sons, including three ASU graduates.
