Meet Aaron Sabey

Aaron Sabey has always been passionate about computers.

After graduating, Aaron plans on entering the workforce in IT security, network management, or as a help desk operator. Once he has a few years of experience, Aaron wants to return to college and further his education. With the IT field constantly evolving, Aaron is excited that there will always be something new for him to learn.

Legislative Priority: Expand Opportunity for Students and Employers

Fully funding our budget requests will have real returns for students like Aaron Sabey and for the communities and employers in our area. Students will learn from competitively-paid experts who choose to work at South Puget Sound Community College rather than pursue higher paying positions with private employers or K-12 schools. Our students will train for careers in robust workforce programs, with modern equipment and learning spaces that mirror their future work environments. We will be able to expand technology to bring a college education to more people in more ways, which is especially important for working adults. And, all our students will benefit from an inclusive environment where they are valued, supported and equipped to reach their goals.

South Puget Sound Community College will also receive funding to operate and maintain existing facilities.
