- HS: Canajoharie, class of 2015
- Major at OCC: Electronic Media Communications
Morgan Chapman’s dream school was always Le Moyne College. It still is and thanks to OCC he will get there eventually. “In high school I cared more about sports than grades. My best friend wound up going to Le Moyne. He told me there was a community college nearby so I researched OCC and here I am.”
Coming to OCC turned out to be Chapman’s best move. “Once I got here my entire mindset about school changed completely. I started working very hard. Just getting perspective and positive reinforcement made such a difference. I’m locked in and focused on doing the best I can.”
Chapman’s hard work has earned him membership in international honor society Phi Theta Kappa. He’s found a home in the Electronic Media Communications (EMC) major. “I’ve met so many people in EMC who are so dedicated. The professors in my major are always willing to stay late. It’s great to know how much they care and how much they all want to see me succeed.
Chapman will earn his degree next May. He plans to transfer to Le Moyne and eventually enter a career related to sports broadcasting.
