“My experience at CAC was life changing, as I grew up in Casa Grande with limited resources; thinking a college degree was not an attainable goal.  Under the excellent guidance of the late Tim Edwards and Dean Merrell, I was able to achieve success in the classroom.  Having also played baseball as a Vaquero, I was able to compete at a very high level in the sport I love the most.  Through the direction and mentoring of Mr. Merrell, and building upon the confidence gained at CAC, I was able to go on to Arizona State University and obtain a B.S. in Agribusiness.”

“CAC was the springboard I needed to continue my education. My skills were honed at CAC giving me the tools I needed to be successful at the University. Over the past 13 years I received my BA and MA at NAU and have taught at the elementary, junior high, high school, and college levels. I was an assistant principal for a number of years. Currently I am working as the director of developmental services at Northland Pioneer College in Northern Arizona.”

“CAC prepared me to go to the next level by attending a college where I received my bachelors degree. I am now going to use everything that I learned from the professors at CAC to achieve another milestone in my life, and that is to receive my MBA from Strayer University here in North Carolina. I am currently a small business owner. Although I did not receive a degree in business, CAC prepared me for my current career by providing me with key elements for success.”
