    Testimonials

    "Mrs. Gilmore helped to prepare me for the real world of office work. Her knowledge and patience was helpful to me even when I was in despair. I became interested in Customer Relations after graduation, and GSTC gave me the education I needed. Since graduation and internship, I have pursued my career as an Administrative Assistant, as well as continuing my education in Business Administration."
