Front Range Community College

Great Lives Launch Here

The foundation of a great career

Now

IT Director, New Belgium Brewing and FRCC Instructor

Then

FRCC Associate Degree

As a high school student, Travis wasn’t convinced that college was his next step. The cost, the commitment, the myriad of choices all seemed daunting to an eighteen-year-old. Instead, he accepted a position in production with a local newspaper. Which is where Travis quickly came to see the need for more people with advanced computer skills. And how he arrived at his goal of pursuing a college education in information technology the most affordable way he knew: by starting at Front Range Community College.

Two years and a wealth of knowledge later, Travis earned his associate degree from FRCC. True to his goal, he then graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems, followed by an MBA from the University of Wyoming. Today? He’s filling the knowledge gap he identified long ago, working as the Information Technology Director of New Belgium Brewing. What’s more, wanting to offer other students the same outstanding support he got from instructors here, he’s now an instructor of computer networking at FRCC.

To which we can only say: Cheers, Travis!

“An FRCC professor once told me how quickly the two years here would go and how far they would take me. I would tell students that your future self will thank your current self for putting in this time at Front Range. You CAN do it.”
