What are you studying at CCC?
I am pursuing an Esthetic Technology Certificate
Why did you choose CCC for your education?
First of all, Cleveland Community College offers an esthetics program and is located within the county. I needed to be near my family and home; plus, it is more affordable than a private college that may offer the same program.
How did you find out you were the scholarship winner?
I saw my name posted on the College’s Facebook page and couldn’t believe. I was not only surprised, but also shocked. I looked at it and read it a second time just to make sure it wasn’t a misprint and that it was really my name. I have always thought if it sounds too good to be true then it usually is…but not this time.
Other interesting facts…
The hardest job I have is being a mom to two beautiful daughters, Amanda, 21 and Amber, 19. They are so excited about my winning the contest and especially since it was through Facebook that I won. My husband of 26 years and I owned/operated Gold’s Photography for a long time. We started the business 20 years ago when we had our first daughter because my in-laws wanted great pictures of their only grandchild. When both of my girls started school I began volunteering and working as a substitute teacher at Springmore Elementary School and that has been my home away from home for many years.
This scholarship will help me tremendously and I am so grateful, blessed, and thankful to everyone at CCC for this wonderful gift…I am so excited to begin this new adventure as a college student.
