Meet Thomas Jones: Future Computer Scientist
“I want to earn a degree in computer science with an emphasis in computing and networking sciences. When I graduate from high school, I will have earned over 15 credits from Utah Valley University distance education classes.
“CTE courses prepared me for entering my chosen field of study. The knowledge from these classes has been and will be beneficial to my success in college. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my technology-related CTE classes, such as Digital Media and Computer Technology. By taking these classes I have come to the realization that the field of computer science is the field I desire.
“My family has instilled the values of responsibility and hard work. I look forward to continuing my education and being a successful and contributing member of society.”
