Jacob Johnson: Spencerian Lexington Alum of the MonthJacob Johnson was selected as Alumnus of the Month from Spencerian College's Lexington campus. He was honored to have been chosen and he said, "It gives me pleasure to be recognized and I hope it will inspire others as well."
Jacob graduated in 2014 with his degree in Computer Engineering Technology and Computer Information Systems Management. He chose those programs because of his passion for Computer Networking. "I remember when my parents bought our first computer, I was so amazed and excited. I would wonder how everything worked and how it connected to other networks. When we bought another computer, I took our first one apart and tried to understand what made it work," said Jacob.
"My favorite part about Spencerian was my mentor and teacher Mr. Jeff Peters. He made everything understandable about what he was teaching. He inspires everyone around him and wanted me to give everything I could to succeed. Spencerian gave me real life situations to solve and hands on materials which greatly helped me. The Certifications I received will greatly help me with my career. I also enjoyed the one on one instruction and gained the confidence I needed to help me get through both degree programs."
Jacob is currently working on his Bachelor's Degree and hopes to have it completed within the next 2 years. "When I am finished with school, I will have a Network Administrator position. My goal is also to obtain my Cisco Certified Architect (CCA) certification, which is the highest level of accreditation achievable and recognizes the architectural expertise of network designers who can support the increasingly complex networks."
Jacob's advice to students is: "Go for what you are passionate about, then all your hard work and commitment you put towards your education will feel exciting and rewarding. If you can make your education more fun and enjoyable, you will finish without any problems."
