ACC Student Spotlight: Nate Bertz

ACC student Nate BertzLeadership, confidence, and lifetime friends are just some of the things that Nate has gained as an ACC student and work study employee. His favorite part about being in the ACC community is the amount of resources the school provides for student success. He always tell students, “The key to great grades is time. If you have the time to dedicate to your education, and utilize ACC’s resources, you’re guaranteed to get A’s in your classes.” And he continues to recommend ACC to anyone and everyone because if ACC can make a leader out of Nate, they can make a leader out of anyone.

From the words of Nate, “before I was at ACC, I had zero leadership skills, professional experience, and a limited number of distant friends. When I came to ACC, I thought I was going to fail out like I did in high school. However, on my first day of class, my teacher told us all, “Each one of you can get an A in my class. All you have to do is show up to class, complete your assignments, and learn for your experiences.” I didn’t believe her at first, but when she handed me my first assignment, and I saw that “A” on my paper, it proved that my past experiences don’t have to define me, and that I make my own future through hard work, and dedication. Over the last 3 years, the staff at ACC have transformed me into the student leader I am today.” Keep Moving Mountains Nate!
