I was at a point in my life where I wanted to change careers, but I also had a family to support. I needed an education that worked for me and my family in a lot of different ways. I was able to graduate from STCC in two years with an Associates Degree in TV Production from the Digital Media Production Department. Within two months of my graduation I found full-time employment in a career I truly love at Western Mass News.David Farnum, Class of 2018, Western Mass News, Springfield,
