Welcome to GCC!
When I was growing up, most students progressed through their formal schooling in a very predictable way: elementary school, followed by high school, and for a minority of high school graduates, college immediately followed high school graduation. For an even more select minority, graduate school followed college.
I have met students who began college at some point in the past, took a few years “off” to raise a child (or several), and then returned in search of a degree.
I have met men and women who took pride in the completion of successful careers, but returned to college in the hope of exciting new career challenges.
I have met veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan wishing to complete their education, longtime employees of regional businesses returning to college after suffering a layoff, grandparents eager to participate in college courses after years of anticipation.
All of these enthusiastic students have a message for us: education can – and should – happen throughout our lives.
My hope is that every member of our community will make a commitment to lifelong education. We all have the ability to learn new things, and deep inside we all have the motivation and curiosity to learn. Whether you desire formal education in a classroom or informal education through books, media, or new experiences, I challenge you to seek new knowledge and skills.
