All of my life I have longed for a higher education. Athens State will always be the best experience that I have encountered in my educational endeavors. I would encourage anyone who is looking to further their education to consider Athens State. You will not be disappointed!
I heard about Athens State University through a friend that was in the Alabama Community College System, and my father inspired me to get my degree. My biggest obstacle was worrying about deployment while in college. However, Athens State allowed me to complete by bachelors in a reasonable time while learning valuable life lessons.
Some might say that I am a success because I have accomplished that difficult task of getting an education, finding a career path that actually resembles my course of study, and mingling that with my true passion, but I say that I am a success in progress. I am a success when I can inspire others to strive for greatness. Thank you Athens State for your part in helping shape my past, present, and future.
The day I received my final exam score, I became overwhelmed by the fact that I just accomplished the goal I set out to achieve 4 years ago – obtain a college education and the CPA certification. My next thought was about the many people that supported me along the way, and the sacrifices that they had to make. I know that the only way to truly show my gratitude is to remain teachable, humble, and willing to serve others – just as they were.
