Alumni Spotlight

“Since I was a child I used to dream of helping those affected after a natural disaster. It took seven years of preparation and I was able to make that dream a reality with the help of my Powerplant License from BC. My wife and I have helped thousands of families providing them with clean water, new roofs, and hope.”

I travel the world as a 747 pilot for UPS. Attending Broward College was a life-changing move that helped facilitate my transition as a flight attendant to ending up in the cockpit of a jumbo jet.
