I decided to go to PCC my senior year of high school. I really never even thought about college before then. I had heard about PCC many times since my sister graduated from PCC and my brother attended for one year. I told myself early on that I was not going to stay for all four years, but God had other plans. I also told myself that I would not get my master’s from PCC, but once again God had other plans for me. Seven years later, I have both an undergraduate degree (Pre-physical Therapy) and a master’s (Business Administration) from PCC.
While my plans were different than God’s, I would not change any aspect of how my life turned out. I met my wife through PCC and many of my closest friends. I am happy for the opportunity to be an enrollment adviser to help prospective students to find the plan that God has for their lives. I look forward to helping each student brought my way to apply to PCC.
