I finished my formal education at the University of Central Missouri with a master of science in Industrial Safety, but it all started at STCC. I rose through the ranks to become an assistant chief during my tenure in fire service. Give STCC a chance. You make your own progress.Marty Maynard, 1978, Town of Windsor, Connecticut
