I am sure there are many out there, just like me, who have thought about going back to school for a long time. Well I finally did it about a year ago, and could not be happier about my decision. I wrote my first blog about this great challenge back in February, click here to read: http://hub.hindscc.edu/blog/bid/360775/My-Latest-and-Possibly-Greatest-Challenge
This is my first blog, and I should probably mention that writing has never been my favorite thing, but I think I am going to enjoy this one. My name is Tammi Bowles and I am going to tell you about my latest (and possibly greatest) challenge.
If you’re an adult who would like to go back to college but you’re afraid to, perhaps you should read the obituary of a lady The Clarion-Ledger, including on Aug. 26, the day I read it.
Hinds wrapped up a series of 2012-2013 graduation ceremonies on June 6 with a special one for GED achievers in our district – adults who did not get a high school diploma by the traditional route but passed a battery of tests to get an equivalency certificate.
In some ways, Amanda McMillan of Pearl typifies the non-traditional Hinds Community College student. At age 43, she works full-time waiting tables at Table 100, is divorced and has three children. In her second semester on the Rankin Campus, she is also taking a full-time load of classes at 12 hours.
