  1. I think these are two awesome students, who have worked hard and stood out amongst there peers. I think it is neat to see the recognition given to them by CVCC. Alot of people believe you cannot get as good an education, and none of the University experience and this lays down that myth. I am a 47 year old lady beginning my education again. I start on 1-8 and will be majoring in the Criminal Justice Program. After reading this, it really gave ME a second opinion of the Community College Experience I had been anxiously awaiting. Now I am Psyched and ready to be a part of the student life out of the classroom. Thanks so much for opening my eyes and thanks for giving me much , much more to look forward to. Angela Dawn Lowe
