Alumni Success Story

Kirsten Kersey
The Joy of Learning

Kirsten completed a certificate in allied health preparation and an associate degree in behavioral science. She has nothing but good things to say about her CCV experience—the support from her advisors, the enthusiasm of her instructors, and most of all, the informal education she received from fellow students. “[I was] learning a lot about strength and resilience” from her peers, she said, “and just meeting some amazing people who didn’t take the typical go-straight-to-college-after-high-school [route]…these people had life experiences. There were parents, there were people from the military, there were people with health conditions such as myself, and they all just kind of had a joy about them too, to be learning. I just have so much respect for the student body.”
