Bergen Community College alumnus, Dontae Trench, studied business administration and finance to pursue a career as a financial advisor. As a soccer and track athlete at Bergen, Trench believes that the successes he has had are connected to asking questions, getting involved, and focusing on each task on hand. Trench served as president of the Caribbean Club and was involved in the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) club. When reflecting on why he chose Bergen, Trench said, “It’s the best there is! Top community college in New Jersey with a great campus, teachers, and affordability.” He graduated in 2023.
