Helping Neighbors: Introducing The Class of 2018
‘It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you don’t stop,” Confucius. I live by that quote!
Mike, an island resident and employee for many years, completed his degree from the Rasmussen College School of Nursing in late March, thanks to assistance provided by the F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Adult Continuing Education Program. “I finally finished! I took my last final and predictor and aced everything. Thank you, F.I.S.H. for all your help. Please join me at my pinning ceremony,” writes Mike in a thank you note to F.I.S.H.
“We’ve worked with Mike, helping him reach his goal, for some time. He had a few setbacks – health, work, Hurricane Irma. But he never stopped, and, once licensing is complete, will be a registered nurse! We couldn’t be prouder of him; this has been his dream since he was a young teen. I am looking forward to celebrating with him at his ceremony,” states Maggi Feiner, President & CEO of F.I.S.H.
“F.I.S.H. always believed in me, even when I had doubts. It wasn’t easy, working two jobs, taking care of my family, and studying until the wee hours of the morning. I wanted this so badly! Now that I am officially a nurse, I couldn’t be happier. This is going to help me and my family in so many ways. From the bottom of my heart, thank you F.I.S.H.,” continues Mike.
The Adult Continuing Education Program assists those who quality with tuition, materials, and/or fees for continuing education. It is our hope that those wishing to continue their education can also increase their marketability in the job market. Continuing education is a way to develop new skills or knowledge necessary for a career transition, which can lead to household sustainability and self-sufficiency.
