Meet Jerald Preacher


My Networking Services Technology degree will pave the way to a bachelor's track in Information Technology. It can open the door to positions like Network Administrator, Database Administrator or Information Technologies Specialist. I have taken classes on two of our campuses and had a really positive experience here at EFSC. It's great!
