Before Justin Daggs started his education at WVJC, he had worked several jobs and had many obstacles to overcome. He said, “I always thought college was kind of out of the question for me. I had multiple reasons for why I could not go. I wasn’t smart enough, poor ACT scores, not responsible enough, the list goes on and on.”
After working several dead end jobs, Justin was referred to WVJC by a good friend and made an appointment to come visit the school. After talking with an admissions representative and touring the school, he chose to enroll in the Information Technology program. “WVJC changed me and gave me some hope in my life when I thought my future was already written,” he says.
After graduating from WVJC with a degree in Information Technology, Justin accepted an IT Help Desk position at the University of Charleston. “I’ve had many opportunities to utilize new technologies and work with equipment used in professional organizations. I get to set up streams and work cameras like some of my favorite YouTube and Twitch heroes,” he says. Justin also has the opportunity to train and support current IT students through WVJC’s externship program. He enjoys sharing his knowledge and his experiences with future WVJC graduates.
