I am currently a freshman at NRCC. My educational goals are to complete my Associate Degree in Science, and then transfer to Radford University to receive my degree in Medical Laboratory Science. ACCE is playing a huge part in helping me to achieve my goals. Thanks to ACCE, I have attended NRCC with little to no expense to myself or my family. ACCE has also allowed me to work within my community. I have been able to help people in ways that I would never have been able to do without this program. I have delivered supplies to community members in need. To see their faces light up because of my visit and gifts is something that has touched my heart. I was also a part of the New River Clean Up. Volunteerism is such a crucial part of Giles County's story and being a small part of that story was eye-opening. I never knew how much trash was in our area and how much of a difference volunteers made in correcting that problem. One person and one group can make a difference. While earning my hours and working at the Admin Building, I learned how to use my people skills more efficiently. I learned to speak more clearly and to maintain eye contact, both skills that I needed more practice with. In the end, ACCE has not only allowed me to attend college with no debt but has helped me mature and be a better person through the community service projects that I have been a part of. I am very appreciative of the ACCE program and the opportunities it has given me.

I am currently attending NRCC working on my degree in secondary education. I hope become a history teacher and work locally, teaching the next generation. ACCE has helped me tremendously in my pursuit of higher learning and has let me give back to the community I’ve known my whole life.
