Franklin Haskins

Alumnus & Financial Aid Advisor

A familiar face on NCTC’s Gainesville campus, Franklin  Haskins has worked in the financial aid office for 12 years, attending a class or two in the evenings and being a single parent to his now 16-year-old son.

“I’ve been a career student forever and have worked in higher education since I was 19,” he says.

Employed by Texas Women’s University for five years, first in the Transcript office and then the Registrar’s, he quit his job and started attending NCTC in 2004, then got a work-study position with the college’s Admissions office. That lasted three years, until he transitioned over to Financial Aid.

Haskins finally earned his Associate of Arts in General Studies in 2016, and he’ll have a bachelor’s degree to frame and hang on his wall in May, when he completes his degree plan with Texas Women’s University.
