Jesus Alvarez

Associate of Applied Science in Information Technology Support Specialist

Jesus Alvarez attended Davis High School while also taking computer science courses at YV-TECH. Encouraged by his instructor to continue his education, he enrolled at YVC to pursue a degree in information technology.

Jesus has enjoyed the friendly approach of YVC instructors and the hands-on learning opportunity available in many classes. “All the instructors know you by name and it makes you feel very comfortable,” stated Alvarez. “I really liked the CISCO class, it helped me learn networking,” he continued. He also benefited from the resources provided by the college to support students.

This spring Jesus had the opportunity to participate in a cooperative internship with Yakima County working in their technical services department. In this role he helped provide technical support to various county facilities including the Yakima County jail.

In June, he completed his associate of applied science degree in information technology support specialist. He has applied for admission to YVC’s bachelor of applied science in business management program as well as a full-time position with Yakima County.
