Faculty member shares how AWC provided a foundation for his own higher education

Parker, AZ (July 19, 2018) – Arizona Western College helped prepare Rich Tozer in his pursuit of higher education. And now, as an Adjunct Professor of Sociology at the AWC Parker Learning Center, he’s using that same education to equip others for their future as well.

“My education at AWC set the foundation for my bachelor’s and master’s degrees,” said Tozer. “I gained the academic skills and confidence to stay academically focused to earn higher education degrees.” 

Some of his most impactful memories as a student at AWC were centered around the faculty and staff connections that helped him succeed. Tozer hopes to do the same for his students by encouraging them to think about the economic value of taking general education classes at AWC and the one-on-one attention they will receive from faculty with smaller class sizes.
