We asked Troy, if he had one piece of advice for alumni what would it be?

“A key to advancing in your chosen career is to align yourself professionally with wise mentors from the start. Seek out those who have the knowledge and professional contacts and are willing to teach you the skills needed in your chosen profession and demonstrate an interest in your advancement. To do this effectively you must network throughout your career and at all times be a good listener.

Be kind and thoughtful to your colleagues and show respect to all stakeholders. Do not confuse being popular at work with being respected and trusted; and at all times seek to be of service to the community you chose to live and work in.

Ultimately life is about the choices we make so take time to make them. Never fear failure; persevere and keep striving to move forward.”
