Education is for everyone

Hello everyone and congratulations! I think that I can speak for all of us when I say, even though we’ve only spent two years at TRMC, it feels like we’ve been here for all four years of high school. A lot has happened to us since the first day we walked into the TRMC hallway. We were thrown into an environment that was foriegn to all of us. But even though those first days were kind of like a slap in the face, it was something that would mature us and change our mindsets about our education.

The opportunity to take college classes at Three Rivers Community College provided all of us with new perspectives on people and ourselves. In class at Three Rivers, you are no longer surrounded by the peers you grew up with in your hometown; you are surrounded by people from all different places and all different generations, all reaching toward the same goal as you. Getting an education. At first glance into one of the classrooms, you might see people who look like they could be our parents or grandparents. But after a while, all you see in the classrooms are hardworking students with dreams. We all witnessed firsthand, everyday, that it doesn't matter if you’re eighteen or eighty, it’s never too late or too early to pursue an education.

After realizing this, our Class of 2020 was able to break records and get the most out of these two years. From the lessons we learned at TRMC, I believe all of us will be able to reach our personal goals. Good luck to everyone and congratulations!
