Student Profile: Kurt Ellis

People

We have another student profile! Today, we feature Kurt Ellis.

-What is your program?

I am a student in the Business Analyst program. Jamie Hammond has been my teacher for all of my core classes. While I’ve only had a few other instructors, Jamie has really stood out as someone whom I admire and appreciate as a teacher and mentor.

-What do you like most about Western?

I love Western for its online program selection most of all because it allows me to obtain my degree here in Eau Claire while still tending to my work and family life. All of my teachers have been great really. My goal is to graduate in December and to see what kind of jobs are available at that time.

-Advice for students?

My advice for future students would be to follow your passion. When you’ve decided which program you want to be in, don’t be afraid to reach out to your teachers, counselors, or anyone at Western. Everyone at Western Technical College has proved to me that they care about me and my goals. Stay the course with your education and even if your classes are all online, reach out to fellow classmates. Your chances of success increase by making friends with other people from your program.

Thank you, Kurt! Best of luck in your future endeavors!
