Mom of Three Earns Diploma & Industry CertificationsHome Page Grid
Campus: Michigan St.
With three sons ranging from elementary to middle school age, Heather Simmons’ life is always busy. For over ten years, she worked at Long John Silvers to provide for her family, putting her education on hold to make ends meet.
However, as her children grew older she grew tired of the status quo. Flexible, accelerated classes made The Excel Center a good choice for Heather and she enrolled, quickly earning the highest GPA in the school and serving as a mentor to other students.
Heather often gives fellow students rides to school, tutors in her free time and tells anyone needing a diploma about her success. She earned her certification as a Certified Business Professional and earned college credits while at The Excel Center.
Today, she is working as a team lead at Goodwill on Carey Road and hopes to study business in college. Heather will speak on behalf of her class at graduation in June. Congrats Heather!
