“I’ve always loved working with computers ever since I took my first computer class in high school many years ago. Dallas College allowed me to realize my career dreams. The instructors were great. They really knew their stuff and brought real-world experiences to the classroom.

“After I received my associate degree, my career skyrocketed. It opened doors for me that I never thought were possible unless you had a bachelor’s degree. The most notable accomplishment was when I was recently promoted to assistant vice president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

“I learned that a Dallas College education can serve as a great foundation to help you meet your career goals, whether those goals are to go on and get your bachelor's degree or to move directly into the employment sector. I achieved both of these goals, and it was my Dallas College education that made it all possible.

“I meet people all the time who are very successful in their careers, and many of them received their education from Dallas College. We are all real-world examples of what a Dallas College ​education can do for your career.”
