CCC Spotlight: Joshua Dixon

Joshua Dixon works for the Help Desk at the CCC Lone Tree Campus.
 

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Joshua Dixon works as a User Services Technician for the Help Desk on CCC's Lone Tree campus. Dixon has worked for CCC for the past two years. He loves working at CCC and interacting with the helpful and friendly employees and students. Dixon fields questions from students and staff, and is available to help with any technological problems.

"From an IT standpoint, people here are very easy to work with," he said.

Before working at the College, Dixon owned his own television and electronics repair business in Flagstaff. This gave him a lot of valuable and relevant experience for his job today, but unfortunately there was not a lot of market for such a business.

"Our society is disposable-oriented, where people just say, 'I'll buy a new TV, I don't need to fix this one,'" he said.

Dixon was born and raised in Flagstaff, attending Northland Preparatory Academy and Flagstaff High School. He loves the small-town feel of Flagstaff.

Currently working towards a Computer Software Technology degree, Dixon will graduate from CCC this May. After graduating, Dixon will attend Northern Arizona University to study Information Technology Management.

"I plan on working for CCC as long as it is advantageous towards my future goals," Dixon said. "Given that working for CCC is experience in the field I desire to go into I view working here as an investment in my future."

Dixon is the Vice President of the CCC Games Club and the Senator for Student Clubs and Organizations for the Associated Student Body. In his spare time, he loves gaming, playing chess, and visiting downtown Flagstaff with friends.
