Louisiana's Community and Technical Colleges

"Student Success Stories"M. Liam Doran is a recent graduate of Nunez Community College where he earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in industrial technology (PTEC).

“I enrolled at Nunez because three of my former co-workers had done so,” said Doran. “Seeing them work full-time and graduate from Nunez in PTEC gave me the encouragement I needed to change careers. I wanted a new challenge and I needed a career with serious growth potential.”

After enrolling at Nunez at 40 years old, Doran has successfully changed careers, leaving the hospitality industry for the oil and gas industry. Upon graduation, he accepted a full-time operator position at Phillips 66 Alliance Refinery in Belle Chasse, LA.

“My PTEC degree from Nunez put my resume on top of the stack of job applicants,” said Doran. “Everywhere I applied, I got called back for interviews. I went from struggling at a small business, to working for one of the top Fortune-500 companies in America.”
