Getting my degree was one of the most satisfying things I have done in my lifetime. I started working towards it in 1997 so it took me 20 years of a classes here and there to fulfill my goal. This quote from former President Calvin Coolidge is one I not only took to heart, but in my opinion lived. "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "Press On!" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Since graduating, I’ve gotten married, had two daughters, and bought a new car. My husband is currently deployed, but I continue to work full-time. I work extended care and currently have hopes of starting for my bachelor’s degree next year when my husband returns home. Eastern has given me the chance to obtain a position where I can provide for my family and have a fulfilling career. I was given a solid base to build and grow as a nurse and continue to build on all I learned at Eastern Community and Technical College. I’m proud to be an alumni.

I was able to get a new vehicle I’m the grateful owner of a GMC Suburban, which will serve the purposes of my microbusiness well. I was also able to donate my previous vehicle to a local resident of Seneca Rocks, WV, who was in bad need of a reliable vehicle.
