In 2012 I graduated from Volunteer State Community College with an Associates of Applied Science degree in Computer Information Systems. While I was a student, I worked as a Supplemental Instructor helping teach Visual BASIC, and as a graduate I worked in the Distributed Education department—formerly known as Distance Learning—under the purview of Dr. Michael Torrence. With his official title of Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dr. Torrence is involved with student support services and maintains an immense dedication to providing outstanding education to each and every student, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or any other categorical class a person could be put into.
Speaking personally, Michael has been a kind and supportive mentor to me over the years, and our conversations have been very influential. I have a feeling you’re going to find him as engaging as I do.
