hen Jennifer began attending OC Shelton, she didn’t know how to turn on a computer or type a letter. Now, she’s finishing up an associate’s degree in Administrative Office Support and eager to find a career, not just a job.
“I didn’t know if I could do it, but I can,” she said. “It’s been a life-changer.”
She credits the caring staff at OC Shelton with helping her succeed. “The things I can do now are pretty amazing and it’s a reflection of all of them.”
Like a lot of OC students, Jennifer enrolled in college because she needed to make a change.
“I am in recovery and I knew the only way to crawl out of this hole I was in was I needed to go to school. I didn’t want to work bottom-level jobs my whole life.”
