Michael Willow "One thing that really impressed my future employer about my educational background is my ability to do things by myself, on my own."

Tom Abernatha "I talked myself out of the decision to return to school for 3 or 4 years before I enrolled. At first I felt out of place, but within a week or two, I was at home. I’m working and juggling schoolwork. It’s challenging, but I’m looking forward to retooling my career."
