Meet Morton

Ricardo Almeida

Ricardo Almeida

Associate in Science , Class of 2008

Ricardo came to Morton College in Fall 2005, when the College’s course offerings, low-cost and an offer of a Cross Country scholarship made Morton the right starting point for meeting his educational  goals. After a successful stint at Morton that included being part of a two-time NJCAA Championship Qualifier in Cross Country (2005-2006), Ricardo earned an Associate in Science degree in 2008. Now he’s back at Morton,  completing coursework that fulfills degree requirements at a four-year institution and helping students with IT issues as a Help Desk Technician in the Management of Information Systems (MIS) department. After graduation, Ricardo hopes to find a position as a Network Database Administrator.
