College is a foundation that many people need to succeed in life, and my foundation started at Tri County Community College.  I got my G.E.D eight years ago at Tri-County and now I’m 21 hours away from my two year degree. It may sound like a lot of hours to go but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I’m excited to see where it will lead me.

I can only hope that I’ll have the same support at a four year college, like I have had here at Tri- County. The teachers and staff have helped me to grow into someone who is more confident in life. I’m getting an education not only for my own fulfillment in life but for my boys; I want to give them a better life with more opportunities to succeed. I want to show them how important getting an education is, even if takes hard work and lots of determination, it will get you something worthwhile.  So, when I sit down with homework and my four year old grabs his pre-school workbook and sits beside me, I know I’m on the right track for success.
