LET’S GET STARTED

"I became unemployed due to a work place injury. I was unable to keep up with the demands of the construction company I worked for. I could not get a transcript from the UK in time to start the next semester of college, but I could sit for my GED. My friends and family all stood behind me in my decisions and congratulated my efforts and successes. I hope to gain my masters degree in business admin eventually."
