Lorna’s son, Richard Ennis, was also attending the Danville campus in the in the information systems engineering degree program. She liked going to school with her son. She also liked that the campus was close to home and offered a program in the pharmacy field. She felt like that was a good fit for her and offered her a good future.
As a student, Lorna likes the small classes which she said was ideal for maximum learning. “The teachers and staff are always willing to go the extra mile to help the students,” she explained.
Lorna will be graduating at the end of August and recently passed the Pharmacy Technician Certification (CPhT) exam . She feels proud of her accomplishments and is excited to start her new career and feels ready because of her education and new certification.
