In financial terms, the benefits of my STCC education can’t be assessed monetarily. My experience at STCC was priceless.

"I first took a course at STCC while I was a student at Commerce High School many years ago. Between that time and my recent graduation from STCC, I’ve lived a very full life. After high school I enlisted in the Marine Corps and later served in the Marine Reserves. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and I worked in social services briefly before finding my niche in business. I worked in sales and marketing for almost 20 years. My interest in finance then led me to supervise a staff of over 20 credit counselors. I’m a father of three children and I enrolled at STCC as a returning adult student to pursue my interest in Accounting and Finance. I’ll be continuing my education at Westfield State University to become a Financial Analyst to individuals and businesses. I like to say, ‘If you don’t tell your money where to go, you’ll wonder where it went.’ In financial terms, the benefits of my STCC education can’t be assessed monetarily. My experience at STCC was priceless.”   Tommy Jones
