Shayna says, "I am so grateful to have the opportunity to meet all of the courageous individuals who come to to the college to meet their goals. It is truly an inspiration to see the progress students make with individualized attention and an honor to be a part of their educational journey. I am always amazed at the relationships that are formed through the advising and learning process and the impact that relationship has in the lives of our students! Seeing these relationships and so many goals realized is incredibly rewarding!"
