WKU-Glasgow offers complete educational path for children
Education has always been the career path for many of my family members. Two generations of my family have attended WKU, and received a degree in the field of education. My daughter will soon begin the third generation, thanks to the WKU-Glasgow Campus.
Twenty-five years ago I was serving as a teacher in the Monroe County School District. As president of the Monroe County Education Association, I was asked by my superintendent to attend a meeting in Glasgow. The meeting was about the possibility of a WKU satellite campus in Glasgow. I agreed to attend and support the efforts because I believed that a WKU-Glasgow Campus would be of great value to our teaching staff and Monroe County students.
I never dreamed about the role the new Glasgow campus would play in the educational attainment of my own children 25 years later.
I have a son and a daughter. They are only one year apart in age. When it came time to think about college, the WKU-Glasgow Campus became our answer. Both children could attend the Glasgow campus, receive their four-year degrees, and live at home.
My daughter graduated in December 2012, and my son will graduate in May 2013. Both children have received an excellent education at the WKU-Glasgow Campus. They have also formed lifelong friendships with their classmates and instructors.
Thanks to WKU-Glasgow for making dreams become reality.
Happy 25th Anniversary WKU Glasgow.
