Students at Vol State were asked what it would mean to them if Tom Hanks came to speak here. They shared some of their thoughts and hopes of inspiration, both for themselves and the whole community.
|Wray Fuller: "If he came to speak at Vol State he would be influencing students. Him going the extra mile is saying that he wants them to be successful as well."|
|Tanner Wood: “It would be great, this little campus getting a superstar like Tom Hanks. I'm graduating next spring, so that would be a story to tell for years and years.”|
|Molly Benson: "It would be great for this school and help to promote community college in general."|

Donna Fair is a single mom graduating with an AAS in Vet Tech. She traveled to Ireland and Mongolia as part of the International Education program.
In Oct 2010, I came to the states with my husband. I think we chose the United States rather than any other countries to better our education. In another word “It is better to get my degree from the US than any other place”. In 2010, I was not able to do much English. I just had very Basic English, so I had to get in an English program for a year.
How has your experience been at Vol State?
Vol state is a very amazing school. Great and high level of education. Good locations, smaller classes where you get to know better about the course and participate to instructors easily. So helpful staff, all the material that we need to success in our studying are available.
What do you hope to do with your degree now that you are graduating?
I am going back home since it has been almost two years away. Then I will try to find a job over there and get my bachelor degree in the same time. There is a big possibilities that I come back to the United States and get my master and PHD degrees in the future.
