Peters is an avid gamer whose interest in the field heightened during that high school assembly when he watched an actual simulation that allowed surgeons and nurses to practice surgery without operating on a live patient.
“I knew I wanted to do something in computers; I just didn’t know what,” Peters said. “When I found this field, I thought, ‘I think I’ve found it.’ It’s paid off so far.”
The small class sizes and individual attention he received at TCC impressed Peters. He particularly enjoyed Roger Frampton’s chemistry class on the Portsmouth Campus, noting, “You had to know what you were talking about to get the grade in his class.”
Peters was thrilled to receive the scholarship, noting, “My jaw dropped just reading the letter.” TCC professors Gary Weaver and Paul Gordy provided recommendations.
