“When I started my associate degree at Eastfield, I was a single parent with two kids looking for a way to move forward in my life and my career. Eastfield helped me to do that. Who would have thought that 10 years later, I’d have a Ph.D. and be a university professor? Without the foundation I got at Eastfield, I wouldn’t be here.” Read Contance's story.
