Over 70 CTN students graduated from CTN colleges across the state. They are not an ordinary group of graduates. They made history by attending college during unprecedented times. Most of them began or continued their community college educational journey during the pandemic, which changed learning and life as we knew it. It took resilience, ganas, and adaptability to get to where they are.
We hope they harness the power of these characteristics. We believe in them and want them to know that their Ascender familia will always be there for them. We hope they will join
the CTN Alumni Association, so we can continue to share in their successes.
