Adam Valerius receives Certificate of Achievement for completing a course in Employability Skills.

As a student in the Employability Skills class during the Fall 2013 term, Adam stood out in his class by demonstrating strong leadership and teamwork skills. He participated in student-instructor planning meetings outside of class in which he offered his expertise and knowledge on the advantages of using Google Drive and Google + in the classroom. Together with another student, William Cepeda, Adam demonstrated Google Drive to his fellow classmates.

He further volunteers his time to assist the Instructor in the Spring 2014 term with implementing Samsung Smart Tablets into the classroom. The tablets will be used as resources for interviewing, setting career goals, writing a resume and cover letter and other employability-related topics.

Adam’s dependability, responsibility and adaptability along with strong technical skills are invaluable to both his classmates and his instructor. He is also a strong supporter of social networking including Google + and LinkedIn.

Outside of school Adam is active in his community. He volunteers as Treasurer on the Board of Directors for his favorite nonprofit organization.

  1. On August 25, 2014 I will return to SAC-SCE/CEC for computer repair classes. An advisor @ UEI College in Anaheim advised me to seek a computer repair certificate so that I could one day become self-employed. I won’t count on that but I’ll still get the certificate – at SAC-SCE/CEC, NOT UEI, because UEI is a private college that would charge me $18,300 in tuition and fees for the very same education I can get @ SAC-SCE/CEC for totally literally scot-free.

    Congratulations Adam Valerius!
