Faculty Feature: Adding it Up

Christine Solomon is not only the department chair of accounting at Trident Tech, but she is also an alumna of the college. Her TTC story began in 1991 when, as she notes, “I decided I really needed to figure out how to help my children with their homework. They were A LOT smarter than I was!” 

Chris found her passion in accounting and this calling propelled her through her associate’s, bachelor's and master’s degrees in accounting. With feet firmly set upon her career path, she earned her C.P.A. license. 

One milestone on her journey was her involvement in Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, first as a student member then later as an honored advisor. Recently Chris was appointed as one of five community college instructors from around the country to PTK Honors Program Council and previously served as a faculty scholar.

Under her guidance, PTK continues to thrive and win awards both from TTC and regionally.
Like many TTC employees, Chris got her start at TTC, went out and accomplished much in the professional world and then returned to share her experience and knowledge with students.

Sooner or later it all adds up.
