Where are they now?
- High School Honors Diploma – TMCC HS
- Associate of Science – TMCC
- Bachelors Degree (Business Admin. Marketing) – UNR
TMCC HS taught me how to work independently to reach my own personal goals. I loved going to TMCC HS because my teachers trusted me and gave me the confidence to be an independent learner.
I run a small business and blog. Recently (thanks for my bachelors and AS), I started substitute teaching to earn a bit of extra money. I have a knack for connecting with people – I am very extroverted. Also, I can DIY and create just about anything!
I am passionate about horses and creativity. I write a blog and spend time with animals in my free time.
TMCC HS is an excellent alternative education option that will require lots of dedication, and is a great option for students who want to get ahead. If you work and study hard, you can advance up to two years – it is like getting a full ride scholarship at the age of 16!
- Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Administration, Major in Economics
At TMCC I learned to take charge of my education, while I had great guidance from the staff, I had the freedom to choose my classes and how I spent my time. I use that today to manage my work and career.
I’m a Financial Analyst at Amazon.com in the worldwide consumer retail financial planning and analysis team. I have knack for paying attention to details while keeping the big picture in mind. I have been a financial analyst for almost 3 years.
Given my profession I follow the tech industry closely, I’m a big techie and enjoy playing with gadgets. My personal hobbies include cycling, playing with my two dogs and exploring Seattle.
