“AACC can help you specialize in something for the future or help you generally in life.”
Christopher Hearse knew early on that he wanted to attend AACC after he graduated from Severna Park High School. In the fall of 2004, as a new AACC student, Christopher found the opportunity he was looking for: the chance to study pretty much anything.
“Come to AACC to learn how to do everything or anything,” said Christopher. “Everything that can be offered at an educational institution is offered here. AACC can help you specialize in something for the future or help you generally in life down the road. It is the best education you can receive for any type of thing you could get into.”
This bright liberal arts student is interested in everything and he enjoys all his classes equally. Christopher is also very active on campus. He is president of the Democrats Club, vice president of the Japanese Language Club and organizational affairs chairman for the Student Association.
“It is important to get involved in clubs," said Christopher. "You can get practical leadership experience for the future.”
Christopher was grateful for the assistance he received from professors when he was applying for scholarships. Because of his initiative and their support, he received the Carpenter-Husman Scholarship through AACC, a Maryland Educational Assistance Grant, and a Maryland House of Delegates Scholarship.
“The professors are willing to help you out and willing to go out of their way to help you accomplish anything in any area,” said Christopher.
Christopher plans on graduating with his associate of arts in liberal arts this May. He wants to get a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts and philosophy and hopes to attend St. John’s College in Annapolis. His future goals include getting a graduate degree and becoming a professor and maybe a senator.
