"The day I walked into the Truckee Meadows Community College Re-Entry Center my life was a train wreck. I was a high school dropout, single mother of three that had recently left an abusive marriage, had health issues and limited job skills.
I had no idea how to put the shattered pieces of my life back together. Fortunately, the staff at TMCC did...I got the guidance, counseling and support I needed to discover the person I was meant to be.
I returned to school and, with renewed confidence and empowerment, never looked back.
I am now a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with an excellent job and a bright future. It was a great honor to recently be appointed to the Displaced Homemaker Board, giving me the opportunity to shine a light for those who are now in that dark place I once was."
