What is your most memorable/rewarding moment working with ACCESS? My most memorable moment/rewarding moment working with ACCESS is the scholarship awards luncheon. I really enjoy the luncheon each and every year it is so rewarding.  I love to see the students and their families being honored and celebrated for their accomplishments and receiving the ACCESS scholarship while moving forward to start their post-secondary education journey.

What is the most important piece of advice you would give to a college-bound student?   The most important piece of advice I would give to a college-bound student is to let them know that all things are possible and follow your dreams. I would tell them to strive to be the best that they can be and that anything worth having usually takes hard work. Lastly, I tell students to look at college and their degree as an investment.  That degree will open up so many doors and it may seem very challenging but there is light at the end of the tunnel. The best feeling will be when you earn a college degree in your field of study!  What an accomplishment!
