Mental Health, Chemical Dependency Specialization+AAS. CTC has vested me with 3 minors: At-Risk Youth, Substance Abuse Specialization, and Social Work. My Minors include Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist, Basic Mental Health Provider, and Criminal Justice Addictions. My Cummulative GPA-3.258 (2.000 required). My aim is to transfer to ASU to achieve my Masters in Business Administration, complete my military obligations, and promote Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness; for the future of my 4 beautiful children, the legacy of my family, and the present day moments that we tend to take for granted. Thank you for taking care of Croan/Penton family. Your arms feel like home.
