|Tri-County Community College Changed My Life
I graduated from Tri-County Community College in May 2004 with an Associate of Arts ~ College Transfer degree. When I first entered TCCC it was a brand new environment for me. I was home schooled and never had the opportunity to work in groups or large classrooms with other students. I was an introvert with minimal social skills and did not have many friends.
That is not the case today. After I graduated from TCCC, I transferred to Western Carolina University. However, when I entered WCU I was no longer that timid, introverted person any longer. My time at TCCC changed my life.
Suzann Ledford is responsible for my transformation. She helped me blossom into the person I am today. Her vibrant personality and creative style of instruction showed me that I, too, can be social and outgoing. She encouraged me to run for student government positions and put myself out there in order to overcome my fears. TCCC taught me more than English, math and science; it was the foundation of the new me.
