Why did you start at ACM? I was recruited to play for the women’s basketball team and I wanted to further my
education in a new environment.
What do you remember about your time at ACM? I remember being at my lowest point, I had an eviction notice, a whole lot of negativity
was surrounding my life, and all I wanted to do was go to school. I told Tara Devore
at Pathways for Success everything I was going through. I didn’t know then that God
had sent her to change my life. The very next day she connected me with ACM staff
who gave me a job, helped me get some extra money for school, and told me they believed
in me. I will never forget Tara DeVore and the Pathways Program. They helped me build
the solid foundation I lacked to be able to get where I am today

Why did you start at ACM? It was familiar and cheap. I had applied to other universities but I realized that
I would have been saddled with student debt and most likely would have obtained the
same amount of skill and knowledge that I ended up getting at ACM.
What do you remember about your time at ACM? I attended ACM during the 2012 General Election. ACM screened the presidential debates
in the Student Center and opened the floor for discussion following each one. The
discussion between members of all political affiliations was so rich that it would
often spill into the parking lot. I remember quite a few events like this at ACM.
Why would you recommend ACM to future students? ACM represents an excellent starting point for any academic career. I do not feel
like I “lost out” on anything because I attended a community college.
What advice would you give future transfer students? Start to build a line of communication with your transfer institution during your
last semester at ACM.
What are you currently up to? I am the District Literacy Lead Teacher for Washington County Public Schools.
