Transcript - Be the Light
After graduating from Johnson County Community College, I was looking for a school to finish my undergrad. And honestly, it was a difficult time. Since the first day I came to this school, I realized that people that surrounded me were there to support me during a time that I needed guidance. Not only did this school open their doors for me during a hard time, but it was the lighthouse that I needed to feel a sense of joy during that time of turbulence.
This school carried out its mission with me. They enlightened me. They gave me the opportunity to achieve my dream of becoming a teacher. And for me, Donnelly is the lighthouse in this community. Without this school, many of us wouldn't be achieving our dreams.
So I thank everyone who contributes to this institution of hope. I just want to thank you for being the light during my storm.
