Jermaine Williams, Dual-Enrolled KCC Student

“I’ve been a dual-enrolled high school student at KCC since my junior year. KCC is a good school, it’s close to home and it allows me to take college classes for free. Because of my experience at KCC, I’m confident in my decision to major in business so that I can manage a record label, or even produce music someday. KCC is great for high school students who want to jump-start their degree. It’s about value. For me, KCC showed me how to turn my passion into a career.”

Adela Leonard, KCC Transfer Student

“After starting at a four-year college I realized that I was unsure about my career path. That’s when I transferred to KCC and discovered my passion for social work. Since then I’ve earned two associate degrees from KCC, I’m completing my bachelor’s at a university, and I’m working as a case aide at an adoption and foster care agency. At Kellogg Community College, it’s about opportunity. I discovered what I want to pursue and was given the tools I need to succeed in my profession.”

Dr. Amy Lee, KCC Graduate

“So I started college right out of high school but then chose to leave for a job. After my first child was born I decided to go back to school. The convenience of KCC helped me pick up where I left off. I obtained my associate degree from KCC and continued on to earn a doctorate in education. Going to school as a working adult with a family is not easy. It’s about staying focused. Now I’m a program director at KCC and I can help my students take the first step toward changing their lives, just like KCC helped me change mine.”
