  • Major at OCC: Computer Studies

Jerry Tingley became an outstanding student as a freshman on campus. “I got motivated during my first semester. Something clicked and I really became interested in school. I realized I could accomplish what I wanted in life if I kept improving my grades. Now I’m trying to do the best I can.”

After two strong semesters Tingley was inducted into international honor society Phi Theta Kappa. He’s serving as the organization’s Vice President for Leadership during the 2016-17 academic year.

Tingley is part of the College’s STEM Scholars program and is pursuing a degree in Computer Science, a major he’s seem destined for since his youth. “When I was 12 I knew I wanted to work with computers. I taught myself how to program so it seems natural to me. Programming is what I really like to do.”

Tingley will receive his degree in May 2017. He plans to transfer to a four-year college and pursue a dual major in computer science and mathematics. “I feel like I’ve come so far here at OCC. I’m excited to see what the future holds.”
