CHARLESTON, WV – WVJC Alumni turned IT Instructor and System Technician Brandon Hicks is a great example of what hard work and dedication to school can do for an individual. Brandon graduated from West Virginia Junior College Charleston in June of 2011 and now serves as a faculty member.
“I enjoy teaching others IT and passing on my passion to them so that they too will have the knowledge, skills, motivation and attitude that I did to be successful. I too was a student here, just as they are, and I know it can be difficult at times. The sacrifices are worth it in the end”, Hicks stated.
One of Brandon’s favorite parts of working at WVJC Charleston are his coworkers and students. “The staff is like my family. We all support each other and work together as a team. The students are eager to learn and want to better their lives and financial stability, and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals.”
