Why College Possible?
It made sense to me as the next move for my career. College Possible is the next step for many high school graduates and I wanted to be part of it. I was involved in the first part of a student’s journey in my previous career. I played a part in supporting and guiding them from age 5 to 18, but that support came to an end when they entered college or vocational school.
Now with College Possible, I get to be part of a team that is helping them complete their journey of education.”
