Graduate's Daughter Follows in Her Mother's Footsteps Almost 20 Years Later

Jun 09, 2014

Karen Gordon, a 1995 graduate of the Danville, Kentucky Campus, watched proudly as her daughter, Clarissa Hill Powers, a medical assisting graduate, walked across the stage to accept her diploma during the campus’s recent commencement ceremony. “She was a young child when I came to National, so I think that encouraged her to go to National,” Karen said.

After graduating from the accounting and management information systems programs at American National University, Karen continued her education at another university, building on the credits that she earned at National. She eventually went on to earn her MBA, and worked in the field of accounting for many years before coming back to American National University as an instructor.

Karen feels proud that she’s set a good example for her three daughters and she’s watched as they each earned college degrees of their own.

“I’ve done this with two little kids,” Clarissa said proudly of earning her degree. “Just a better career to better take care of my children--that’s what I’m striving for.”
