TCC student Ben with his kids

“TCC has created an avenue of growth for me because of the plethora of resources that helped me throughout my college endeavor. I have been challenged to be reflective when faced with differences, I learned to face failure and turn it into success, and I understand the importance of “community.” Not only have I become a better human being, but I also became a better father. I owe it to the education I received from TCC.”

-- Ben Feldbush, TCC student with his kids
