When Ryan Harmon started an Information Systems Project Coordinator program at Highline in March 2013, he planned to load up on courses and graduate as fast as he could.
He did finish his two-year AAS in a speedy six quarters, then immediately landed a Technical Project Manager job at the tech company Good Done Great.
But while at Highline he found himself doing a great deal more than his academic studies.
