St. Clair County Community College alumni are among those participating in the revitalization of downtown Port Huron. Take, for instance, Todd Goldman, who is busy rehabbing a prime downtown destination for his company TC Goldman & Associates.
Goldman, who serves as president of the global manufacturers’ representative business for industrial and automotive products, purchased the building at 521 Michigan St., just north of SC4’s College Housing.
He plans to move his headquarters from the former Fogcutter building across the street to the new address later this year.
A Port Huron Northern High School graduate, Goldman, 48, earned his associate degree in general business from SC4 in 1991 and credits the institution for providing him with a successful foundation.
“As a lifelong resident of St. Clair County, I chose to attend SC4 because it was close, convenient and, most importantly, affordable,” he said. “After I received my associate degree, I attended Northwood University to continue my education. My SC4 advisor helped make sure all my credits transferred seamlessly.
At Northwood in Midland, he earned both a second associate degree in automotive aftermarket management and a bachelor’s degree in business management.
Goldman said he was well prepared when he moved on to another school.
“Attending SC4 helped me ease into the college experience before I left home,” he said. “Once I transferred to Northwood, my studying habits had been established, and my overall educational experience was successful based on the foundation I established at SC4.”
Goldman said he hopes to give his business’ new downtown building some flair.
“I purchased the building about a year ago and have hopes to complete the renovation by the end of 2019,” he said. “I have always had an interest in architecture, so we decided to do a major renovation on the building and give the old, simple block building some style.
“We have added a second story, gave it a modern look and added solar panels to help keep our utility costs to a minimum,” he added. “I really hope the unique style adds to the look and revitalization of downtown Port Huron.”
Goldman and his wife live in Burtchville Township and have two children.
