"I worked full-time and attended Kilgore College full-time at night. I am finishing my second semester as a management major. My long-term goals were to graduate from Kilgore College and to gain a promotion within my company, which I did. I plan to manage a high tech site and later to move into upper management. I will continue to go to college and earn my four-year degree."

"I am a Kilgore College graduate with Associate of Applied Science degree in Management. The Management program has enabled me to combine my interest of children and business. In the last six months I was part of the Americorp Vista Program, which entitled me to help lead our community in eliminating illiteracy in children as well as adults. I don't believe I would have been as great a leader, if it had not been for the many resources I gained from my management courses. Since then, I have received a scholarship from the Americorp Vista Program. This will allow me to continue my education at Letourneau University. My future goals are to receive my Masters and eventually own and operate a facility for troubled adolescents."
