We're now going to meet with an accomplishment list a mile long. But Dr. Patrick Horton is most proud of his graduate degrees from University of Phoenix. He is a retired U.S. Army sergeant who received the Purple Heart during Operation Iraqi Freedom and executive vice president of program Management. A college professor and a member of Vintage Executive Coaching. Let's hear what he has to say. Thanks, Alex. Everyone. My academic journey at University of Phoenix was amazing. Because of the university platform, I was able to experience living in locations around the world by my graduate degrees. The University of Phoenix allowed me to work on my schedule, which created an amazing work life balance for me as a working professional. My journey started when I was released from U.S. Army Active Duty and became a Department of Defense contractor. At that point in my life, I had an associate degree and dreamed of continue my education. But school wasn't an option. My schedule and working overseas made it difficult for me to attend classes. Then I found University of Phoenix. The University of Phoenix is one of the first universities to revolutionize online learning. They had comprehensive programs in my field of information technology that align with my profession. I could pursue higher education while gaining valuable work experience, thus optimizing my potential for career enhancement in the most efficient way possible. The level of academic quality is second to none. The flexibility of the degree structure allowed me to travel the world and pursue new career opportunities without sacrificing academic quality. Attending a doctorate with classes that directly align with my executive workforce challenges, tasks and scenarios made me a believer that e-learning likely keeps better place with the real world. The post-graduate degrees I earned the University of Phoenix help me in my professional career and personal life after completing a doctoral journey. I feel that there's nothing that I can't learn. I truly believe that knowledge acquisition is a compounding asset and that because of my university fees journey, I go exponentially as a person every day. Back to you. Alex. Thank you, Patrick. And well done. University of Phoenix offers doctoral degrees in business, health care, nursing and education, and students receive support from a dedicated research chair. The College of Doctoral Studies prides itself in helping students distinguish themselves in the field while positively impacting their communities. Thank you for your service, Dr. Horton, and thank you for sharing your story.
