Hayesville resident Cynthia Lundy will graduate from Tri-County Community College (TCCC) in May with an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree.
“I am really determined to finish my education not only for me but also for my family,” said Lundy.
A graduate of Andrews High School, Lundy left this area immediately following high school to live and work in Virginia.
Following a move back into this region and a new marriage, Lundy said the timing was right to enroll at TCCC. Since that time, her academic progress has been steady and her attitude was commendable to faculty and staff at TCCC since she was named the 2009 TCCC Academic Achievement Award recipient earlier this year.
“It was an honor to be acknowledged by the college last spring for my academic achievement,” said Lundy. “I had the opportunity to travel to Raleigh and meet Governor Beverly Perdue to receive my award. That was something I would have never been able to do had it not been for all my hard work and for the support of Tri-County Community College.
“The faculty and staff strive do make you succeed and that is what Tri-County Community College is all about,” said Lundy.
