“I have been able to watch the students’ self-confidence grow. They realize that what they are doing in their life truly matters, and matters in the lives of their families. Many of them are taking pride in themselves for the first time and accomplishing something in their life they may have dreamed of, but never thought possible. For some of them, as it was for me, they are the first generation in their family to be able to attend college. It is a great accomplishment.
“I listen to students and let them know that they are important to us and do my best to provide them with the tools they need to succeed in their education and career development.
“The best thing about being part of the National College faculty & staff is we all work together as a team. Our students feel that they can come to us with their questions and know that we will help them to the best of our abilities. It takes us all to make the campus run effectively for our students and to make sure they get the best education possible.“
