Transform A Life
2015 Annual Campaign
Your Gift Trans Three years ago, Gary Johnson was involved in a severe car accident that caused a traumatic brain injury and temporary immobility. He lost his job, his car, his home, and his clothing. GTCC helped Gary find his potential and unlock his possibilities. Today he is pursuing an Associate in Arts degree and an Associate in Applied Science degree in Human Services Technology. His goal is to give back to the community that helped him rebuild his life. “GTCC gave me a chance in life. Before that I was just existing. It’s opened doors for me to allow me to open doors for someone else.”
- Gary Johnson

“My whole life I have enjoyed the opportunity to fix things and gain an understanding of how things operate and why. My skills as an electrician and my desire to serve the public have led me to choose a career in HVAC/R. I feel my life experiences have given me many tools to succeed in the field once I complete my degree. I am very excited and optimistic about my future.”
