  • 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

Q & A

  • Where did you transfer after leaving ACM?
    I transferred to Frostburg State University.
  • What degree(s) did you earn there?

    Bachelor of Science in English Language & Literature and Secondary Education

    Master of Education in Educational Leadership

  • 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.
