Business Administration Student Highlight – Jacob Mace

Jacob Mace | WVJCJacob Mace is enrolled at West Virginia Junior College Charleston in the Business Administration program. Before attending WVJC, Jacob felt lost. He was tired of constantly stressing about what to do with his life. Jacob had never attended college before but said “A week before my aunt passed away I promised her that I would go to school and do something with my life. WVJC was my choice. After the initial interview, I just felt like part of their family.”

Jacob decided on the Business Administration program because he was interested in learning more about marketing and advertising.  When asked about his favorite part of WVJC, he said “Would it be cliché to say everything? The classes, teachers, staff, my classmates, and the business club. West Virginia Junior College saved me from going down a dark path.”

Jacob said his favorite two teachers are Mr. Batman and Mrs. Katie and that he has really enjoyed his marketing class.

In five years Jacob would like to be able to say he kept his promise to his aunt.  He sees himself being successful in a job he likes and maybe starting a family. He said he may also want to relocate, “Don’t get me wrong, I love West Virginia, but I want to explore and see what else is out there.”
