Journey to Success

February 2014

Success Stories

Thank you to the Success Coaches who have already met with students and are taking their students on the route to success. Two quick stories to demonstrate how you matter.

Success Coach Rosalinda Minnis, with the help of Deans Greg Morris and Jim Handy, assisted a student in course placement that would lead to her degree. The student will now be able to graduate and transfer by the summer with the help of this team!

Success Coach Roberto Cruz stopped by the Transfer Fair in the student center last week to pick up information for his student, his efforts were repaid in a personal note from the student. "Thanks for being my coach and I'm really looking forward to this semester and more."

You do make a difference! Keep up the awesome work; I'll continue reviewing your notes to see what great things you assist your students in accomplishing!
