Supporting Your Success

I still ask myself "What would Ms. Wilson do?" after all these years. I learned so much from her and Ms. McClelland on how to be a professional administrator. I have enjoyed my time at WCJC so much that with the encouragement of my bosses, GG Hunt and Patrick Ralls, I will be graduating in the fall of 2023 with my Bachelor of Business Administration in Management at the University of Houston-Victoria.
