Michael Romley – IT Director Highlight

Michael Romley serves as the Director of IT and Instructor of IT at West Virginia Junior College Bridgeport. While Michael might be new to teaching, he is incredibly passionate about the Information Technology field.

He started down his professional path at the WVJC Bridgeport campus in 2011 when he graduated from the same program he is now teaching in! After graduation, he started working in the private sector as a Desktop Support Technician at Mylan Pharmaceuticals, a System Administrator for Scott Aluminum, and the Director of IT for Freedom Automotive. After working his way up the corporate ladder, he decided it was time to make a shift and start to use his 10 years of experience in the IT field to help guide newcomers.

Michael says, “When the position opened for the Director of IT at WVJC, it was like my life was pointing me in that direction. I remembered the great atmosphere and the great education that I received there and knew I had to apply.” Michael joined the WVJC Bridgeport staff in December of 2018 and has continued to make the IT program the best that it can be.

When Michael is not focusing on helping his students succeed, he is spending time at home with his family. Every day, he tries to instill the same responsibilities and education that he instills in his students in his son as well.
