Philip Metz, 2019 GED Graduate

I wasn't raised to value education. My desire to learn and explore was something I had to discover for myself.
The GED program at SWOCC gave me everything I needed to be successful, the tools, the courage, the inspiration, and so much more. I wouldn't be where I am now, and where I'm heading, without this school.
And now, I'm currently finishing up my first year in college! After I earn my associate degree, I plan to pursue a bachelor's degree in science and education. The amazing people at SWOCC helped shape my desire to become a science teacher.
To anyone out there reading this that is considering going back to school I would say: remember you are not alone! Everyone at the college wants to see you succeed and will work with you to ensure you do.
