Brazosport College is my college of choice. It means a whole lot to me, but not just for me, but also for my family because my family, they've never gone to college. Just for them to see that I've gone to get my degree, it means a whole lot to them more than this for me.
COM has the best PTEC program around. We have some of the best instructors. They're very helpful and supportive. The best part is they come from the industry. Without COM, I wouldn't be where I'm at today.
