One day, he was literally driving up and down streets unknown to him, just trying to see what Sacramento might be able to offer him. He ended up in the lobby of Asher College.
He was interested in IT, but the timing wasn’t right. I referred to some friends of mine who own a barbershop and assured him we would be here when he was ready.
Fast forward one year. When William walked into our lobby this time, he was different man. He was confident, joyful and ready to start school. Sacramento was no longer a foreign place, but actually home. He had remembered that Asher College had made him feel welcome at a time when he felt like a stranger. He met with one of our admissions advisors and soon he was enrolled in our Computer Specialist and Network Technology Associates Degree Program.
And now for the happy ending. William Newell earned his Applied Associates Degree in Computer Science and Network Technology in June of 2017. Before he even graduated he started his IT career as an Apple Care Advisor. Just recently William was hired as an IT Supervisor for PG&E.
