How would your life be different if Big Bend Community College wasn't there when you needed it?
"If Big Bend Community College wasn't there when I needed it I would not have my Associate in Arts and
Science-DTA degree, therefore I would not be able to finish my BA in June 2012 as I am doing now. I would probably
still be working in a factory or waiting tables and I obviously wouldn't have my job as an Office Assistant here at Big
Bend Community College. With that said, I am extremely thankful for Big Bend Community College because not
only has it given me the education I wanted but it has also given me my career".
How did Big Bend Community College help you progress in your professional/personal goals?
"Big Bend Community College helped me progress in my professional/personal goals by having the program
available that I needed in order to obtain my transfer degree so that I could move on to get my BA. I have also been
blessed with my job as an Office Assistant at Big Bend for the last 6 1/2 years".
Who impacted you at Big Bend Community College (faculty or staff)?
"I have been impacted by so many faculty and staff at Big Bend. While I was working on my AAS I had the
opportunity to be lectured my many great faculty. Everyone of them are awesome and willing to help in any way
possible. As for staff, I have been able to work with just about everyone on campus over the past 6 1/2 years and
they have all been a pleasure to know. I have to say the ladies in Registration and now my WorkFirst co-workers
have had the most impact on me because I have been with them daily. Not only are they my co-workers but they
have become my extended family".
"Thank you Big Bend Community College, all of the faculty and staff! Without you I would not be who I am today"!
