Meet Samuel Dixon

The Electronics & Advanced Technologies department offers five scholarships per year to our department students.

Meet our 2013 AMD/Gary Heerseen Scholarship Recipient

- Samuel Dixon-

“It has been a great honor to receive the AMD/Gary Heerseen Scholarship. In addition to being a beneficial lead into the AMD network, it has been a great incentive to stay in school where I have forged memorable and meaningful relationships with professors, tutors and fellow classmates. Professors and tutors have given me tips for making myself more marketable to the employers they’ve worked with, and classmates have called me when jobs opened in their companies. While attending UT and Texas State were options to me, I’m so thankful that I chose ACC instead. The care and networking opportunities I’ve been given at ACC far outweigh whatever prestige may come with attending a four-year university.”

Meet Ruben Garza

I came to ACC looking to start the path to a career change and obtain a degree in electronics. Now looking back at the time I have spent here, I have not only completed my A.A.S. in Electronics Power Technology, but with the guidance of the incredible staff in the Electronics and Advanced Technologies department who so often go above and beyond the call of duty, I have achieved my goal.

I have accepted a position as an electronics technician with Novacentrix, an exciting company in our area. I will be both assisting in the building and testing of photonic curing machine's electronic subsystems, as well as operating and maintaining a pulsed power chemical reactor which makes nano powder from silver rods. As an additional perk, they have encouraged me to continue to serve a technical tutor & lab assistant at Riverside campus on Monday evenings. I am truly grateful that they are willing to allow me to continue the opportunity to work with our staff and assist our students. I have found helping students understand the technical material to be a great challenge and extremely rewarding.

I look forward to continuing to work along side both our students and staff, and offer encouragement to students to stay the course, work hard and you too can reach your career goals.
