CCV was the road to a bachelor’s degree, which had been a dream of Jean’s since high school. Post-Johnson State, Jean was able to change professions and loved every minute of it. Jean couldn’t have done it without CCV. She retired in 1997, moved to Cape Cod in 1998, and spent 22 wonderful years there. Following the death of her husband in 2020, she is now living independently in a retirement community off-Cape. She could not have done any of this without CCV.
