Emery Dean – Student Highlight

Emery Dean graduated from Braxton County High school in May 2020. He enrolled in the Network Administrator/Security program at West Virginia Junior College, immediately following his high school graduation.  He chose this program due to his love and passion for computers. He has been intrigued since he was little about “how a computer really works.”

Emery is excited that this program will prepare him for computer troubleshooting and network structuring, as well as system security maintenance. Emery says that he is very happy that he chose WVJC Bridgeport over the other larger colleges around, because of the small class sizes. Emery is enjoying class so far. Emery said he is looking forward to building a computer of his own to take home with him!

Emery’s instructors enjoy having him in class and are confident in his success. He is dedicated to his work and studying. If there is a concept he doesn’t fully grasp, he will surely ask questions, but he leads with the eagerness to learn. Emery is a great student and is always attempting to explore explanations before solutions are given. He says that “WVJC helps make this possible with the small classes and one on one attention from each instructor.”  He mentioned that he feels more comfortable asking questions in smaller classes when there is something he struggles with understanding.  Emery says, “communication is seamless between emails with the instructors all the way to communicating any issue with the Campus President.”

Emery grew up playing around with computers and has always been computer savvy. He is hopeful that his future career will include building computers and troubleshooting them with a reputable company within the area. He looks forward to completing his degree and joining the workforce.
