Celebrating Workforce Success

As fast as my son and daughter seem to grow up, technology changes just as quickly. Between their questions about computers and my own desire to be technologically advanced at work to earn more as a single mother, I knew I needed to take some classes. 

Thanks to Salt Lake Community College, and having a campus near my home along with continuing education options that fit with my busy schedule, I have improved my position in the workplace and I am more helpful at home. Since my primary language is Russian as a Ukrainian native, my English also needed improving – and the courses at SLCC helped me achieve that goal. 

I encourage people of any age to take continuing education courses to help you succeed at your job and at home. I feel more confident now in both places. It’s never too late to learn something new.
