Brandon’s Success Story

A time-lapse image showing Brandon transition from an army veteran to a fire fighter

In high school I thought I was going to be a famous basketball player, but ended up going into the military. My grandma actually passed away in a fire right before I was getting ready to exit the Army. I knew then the career I wanted to do — to be a firefighter. As a single father I didn’t think I had enough time to put into school. People kept telling me about this great program at TCC. The Fire Academy has been awesome; everyone on the Northwest Campus is amazing. I just became a member of PTK honor society — I never thought I could do that. If you’re thinking about going to school, TCC is a great school with great programs.
