Why should students throughout Western NC consider pursuing postsecondary education?

College is a place where you will learn so much about yourself and about the world around you. You will be exposed to new people and amazing opportunities. There are so many resources available to help students pay for college including scholarships and grants, so money should not be a limiting factor. A college degree opens up so many doors for a person, so students should start learning about postsecondary education early, so they can explore the options available to them.

What is one piece of advice you might be able to offer a middle or high school student?

Explore your interests! Don't decide too early on what you think you want to do for the rest of your life. Learn about as many potential careers as possible so you can truly find what will make you happy in your future.
