How has education changed your life/your family?
I grew up around education. My mom was a grade school teacher at a small, rural Illinois school. Some of my earliest memories are of walking the halls of her school helping the teachers get ready for the school year. My love and passion for learning developed there and continued through my college years. At Heartland Community College I had my first glimpse of how education could alter the lives of people and families. I firmly believe that education, done with intention and purpose, provides economic mobility, equitable opportunities and outcomes, and an enlightened democracy.
