I decided to attend Southwest Tech at the age of 40 as I wanted to try a new profession. I graduated from the Finance Program in 1992 and was able to obtain a job at Southwest Accounting shortly after graduation. I have worked there since then, becoming part owner of the business. We are happy to employ several Southwest Tech alumni and serve many clients who are also alumni. I have never heard a negative comment about the training and education they received, it’s always very positive. When I attended Southwest Tech they were very helpful with working around my farming schedule and still allowing me to obtain an Associate’s Degree in two years. Having the college in Southwest Wisconsin is a huge benefit for our area.
