"My associate’s degree is my working degree"Johnston Community College is the college of choice for my family.
I earned my associate’s degree in radiology at JCC 35 years ago. My daughter, stepson, and son-in-law have also all received their education at JCC.
I can’t say enough about the value of a community-college education. I went on to receive my bachelor’s degree in my profession, but I’ve always considered my associate’s degree to be my working degree. It’s what has allowed me to make my living in radiology and work as an instructor at JCC for 28 years. I received the faculty of the year award from my peers earlier this year for my dedication and commitment to the college.
One of the greatest benefits of community colleges is that they give you the opportunity to learn a trade and within two years you can get a good-paying job. I have always been so thankful for my associate’s degree. It is the basis for my radiology knowledge and has allowed me to have a profession that I enjoy and am so proud of.
I’m Marty Wood and I’m a 1975 graduate of Johnston Community College.
