College moms are definitely women of character, courage & commitment! Not only are these women working moms with jobs, families and community involvement but they are tremendous role models. Some are working on their first degree and some are working on advanced degree.
What a great testament of believing in yourself. What a great testament to the value of an education. What a great role model for your children.
Three awesome friends I know and respect were/are college moms —
- Tina Dierkes, Ph.D.
- Julie Gorski
- Deena Olson
The National Center for Educational Statistics says adult students are in fact the fastest growing, educational demographic in the United States. Attendance is on the rise among students with dependents, as well as among single parents. What a great investment to show your children!
All of these hours of study, projects, testing, and so much more undoubtedly take time away from others. However, when the goal is achieved everyone feels the benefit. They realize the achievement of a worthwhile goal.
During this celebration of character, courage & commitment – I celebrate the authentic leadership of my friends and college moms everywhere!
Thank you! What a group of women!
