March Student of the Month

Wyoming EOC Coordinator, Rico Lind-Gonzalez writes,

“The March Educational Opportunity Center Participant of the Month is Tony. He started this semester at Laramie County Community College (LCCC) majoring in Engineering. His future educational goal is to transfer to the University of Wyoming to finish a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering. He is also a United States Navy veteran who is involved in the Student Veterans of America group on LCCC campus. One of the ways Tony plans on using his degree is to enhance his hobby of building and racing drag cars at the speedway. It has been a pleasure working with Tony because of his positivity and extra effort in applying for scholarships.”
 

March EOC Student of the Month

Ashley Garcia has been named the March EOC Student of the Month.  Ashley has shown enormous tenacity over the years.  She hesitantly began working on her GED several years ago, unsure if she would be able to attain her goal, but she stuck with it.  Within 5 months, she proudly held her high school equivalency certificate during the Family Literacy graduation ceremony.  Shortly after completing her GED, she enrolled in the Nursing program at Northwest College.  Being a mom with four kids is a big job, and with her husband unable to help with the kids at this time, she is operating as a single mother while pursuing her degree.  She rushes from class to class and then away to pick up the kids from school, managing to squeeze in working 20 hours a week.  While it is no easy feat, she keeps a positive attitude with her goal of being a nurse always ahead, keeping her moving forward!
