AACC Profile: Michael Fahrner

"Right after high school, I joined the Marine Reserves. I wasn't sure what else I wanted to do and enrolled at AACC to try to find out.

I was then deployed to Afghanistan where I saw firsthand the positive impact engineers can have on a community, and I knew that's what I wanted to do. My AACC professors showed the same leadership qualities I saw in the Marines - passion, hard work and concern for others. They even remembered me by name when I returned from deployment.

My commitment paid off because now I'm transferring to a four-year university to complete my bachelor's degree in engineering. And I managed to become Valedictorian along the way."
