Pauline Brown

I have taken several courses with Mrs. Judy. Brown low and she is by far the most engaging and not to mention, very helpful instructor. I always walk away from her courses feeling a little more knowledgeable. I simply enjoy her class and I respect her kindness and great professionalism. She is simply the BEST!!!

Dee Pearson

Ms. Laura in Financial Aid was very helpful, friendly, and super nice! I truly appreciated all of the assistance she gave me. Also, our instructors Ms. Nikki, Mrs. Tawanna, and Ms. Bailey definitely understood the assignment! I was in the first cohort and boy it was tough, but very worth it! Wouldn’t trade my experience for anything in the world! Again, I thank those ladies for sticking with us and getting through.
