What I mean is they all come to me (and to Amarillo College) with a dream.
Many are trapped in seemingly hopeless circumstances: like living in the kind of poverty where they have a hard time making it from paycheck to paycheck, or they are recovering from a drug addiction and its consequences (sometimes, extended jail time), or trying to pick up the pieces from an unexpected life event (divorce, teenage pregnancy, an accident or serious illness, job loss and/or financial reversal).
And school offers hope; maybe their only hope.
I should know. At 45, I was in their shoes.
So I want to offer daily encouragement. Life can be better. Much better. You can accomplish that dream.
And—you can get there from here.
