Alumni Profile: Steve Cook

Steve Cook"When I began my national search for a college that specialized in hospitality and tourism, it was a challenge to find a program that would fit both my educational and
personal needs.

"As a returning non-traditional student with two children, I found Johnson State College had the resources, schedule and program that fit my needs. It provided me with the opportunity to not only learn the business of the hospitality and tourism industry in the classroom, but also gave me the chance to work in the field through the hospitality programs network of businesses.

"While receiving my education, I was able to work at three major ski resorts in the area and eventually intern with the State of Vermont where I now serve as the State of Vermont's Deputy Commissioner of Tourism. Johnson State College helped me to quickly advance my career in the tourism industry and provided me with the education that I needed to get ahead.”
