Video Features JTCC Nursing Alum

Posted on August 22, 2013

By Holly Walker

We’re always happy when our alumni let us know what they’ve been doing. We’re even more thrilled when they are willing to share their success stories. That’s just what Shawn Fenner did recently, when he agreed to be featured in video that’s now part of the Virginia Community College System’s (VCCS) new web site.

Shawn came to Tyler as a career switcher. After working more than ten years in journalism, he had decided he wanted to move into a career that would allow him to help others. In 2012, he accomplished that goal by graduating from Tyler’s Nursing program and getting a job at a local hospital. But, Shawn hasn’t stopped there. While he’s working in his field, he’s also continuing his education.

Shawn's story caught the attention of the VCCS, which wanted to highlight the role community colleges play in helping people further or switch their careers. Shawn’s video is now part of the VCCS homepage. You can enjoy it at www.vccs.edu or on YouTube at http://youtu.be/2cB7FAa0Cos.
