  • The experience that I gained at HCC led to my first job in the TV News world because I was able to put on my resume that I ran a camera, I knew how to do teleprompter, I could write and produce, and that's how I ended up getting a position at KHOU as a production assistant. Another great opportunity at HCC was receiving a scholarship because I paid for my books, my classes were taken care of, all of my supplies, and that meant that I could truly focus on what I wanted out of my career and spending more time at HCC TV.

  • My hope is that I leave a legacy at San Jac long after I am gone. I want students to feel like they belong at San Jac and that choosing community college was a great choice. Our time at San Jac is short, so I want everyone to enjoy the moment before going into the workforce or transferring to a university.

  • There are so many opportunities for students interested in a career in culinary arts. You don’t have to spend all of your time in the kitchen. There are careers as food stylists, bloggers and food reviewers and in areas such as competitive cooking. The sky is the limit for those who want to work hard and pursue certifications.

  • I love the care that goes into community colleges and that community is usually their focus. The first time I set foot on Alvin Community College campus, I felt at home and welcomed instead of just another student.

  • ACC has always been like a home to me. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The community connection is what brought me to make a final decision to attend ACC.

  • ACC has a really nice environment and a great healthcare program. I decided to transfer from another community college and never regretted my decision. ACC provides students with more care, more opportunities and a friendlier atmosphere to be successful.
