Adult and Continuing Education
"Education is a gift. Situations may come and go, but an advanced education is an investment in you that never goes away. At BW, you can learn new skills and meet people that will enrich your life forever. Every opportunity for assistance is available to help adult learners get their degrees. I am excited to know that the world is full of places to go and people to know. BW is a gateway to life-altering experiences where you determine how much or how little you will take from the exchange. I have an opportunity to meet adults interested in returning to school and I can tell them firsthand how they can do “IT”. I truly believe that anyone can learn anything at any age. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) and so can you!"
I am a Yellow Jacket For Life (YJ4L) who graduated in 2009 with a Master of Business Administration degree in Human Resources after many years of “want to do”, “should I do?", "wish I could do". I know the fear associated with wanting to complete your degree after being out of school for many years. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and education has been a driving force for me since I was a little girl. Today, I consider myself a student of life for life. I love to learn new things and try to fill up every day with something new. I love to watch all forms of live entertainment including all sports. I am a total and complete “Foodie” and in my spare time, I own and operate a catering business. There are few things that I do not enjoy participating in, except maybe fishing. However, if you put a hibachi on the back of a “yacht” and I’m the chef; I just might be there!
