How has education changed your life/your family?
College has enabled me to have upward mobility that I wasn’t always sure was available to me. It provided opportunities to expand my way of thinking through exposure to cultures and experiences I could not have connected to otherwise. My wife and I both represent the second generation in our families to be able to attend college and the first to pursue graduate degrees, and these opportunities have shaped every career opportunity we’ve been given. We are so grateful for the hard work of those who came before us.Email Eric
