WCC Student Spotlight

As a returning student after 18 years and a mom of five, WCC made my lifelong goal of completing my degree at 40 become a doable reality. I am now the Director of a large preschool in our area as well as the Children’s Director of my home church. I am grateful for the opportunities that WCC provided me to make my career dreams come true.
