My family moved to Pamlico County in 2011. I was a high school dropout, working on homeschool assignments. Getting a GED seemed like a quicker way to the next step in my life, so I visited the college in early 2012. I was in the GED program for two weeks, and then returned to start my Associate of Science degree the following semester.
I’m now looking at going to ECU in the fall for a bachelor’s degree in computer science. I’ve had help from nearly everyone at PCC, in some way or another. They’ve pushed me farther than I would have expected when starting out. I don’t plan on stopping; maybe I’ll even have a PhD on my wall sometime soon.
There are countless people to thank for getting me this far. I hope they understand how deeply, unwaveringly grateful I am for everything they’ve done for me.
