"My education at JCC allowed my family to buy our first home"Two years ago, I was working as a state employee, frustrated with my job that barely paid the bills. Today, I love going to work at a local biopharmaceutical industry and now make enough money to buy my wife and two daughters our first home.
My success is possible because of the skills I learned through the BioWork certificate program at Johnston Community College. Every thing I learned in the program I now use on the job.
The BioWork program is a great opportunity to earn a significant salary quickly. A four-month, $165 course has turned into a lucrative career in just my first year in the industry.
Coming back to school was definitely a commitment but one I was more than willing to make. Whenever I talk to people who are struggling to make ends meet, I tell them about my success thanks to my community college experience. It’s a phenomenal opportunity that has been a life-changing event for me and my family.
I’m Lamar Williams and I’m a 2007 graduate of Johnston Community College.
