“It’s worth the struggle. If I didn’t have my son, if I didn’t have to struggle through classes, I don’t think I’d be where I am today. I’m now very appreciative of everything because I started with nothing. I had to work for it all and the things I learned along the way are priceless.”

“I chose KCC because it makes economic sense, and for the convenience. I was able to take a lot of general education classes at night and still work full time. I’ve found plenty of opportunities to succeed, and the staff are always there to help.”
