“I got involved with who the LaPorte County Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) as a student. That opened the door to a career for me. I thank my PNC instructors for giving me solid preparation for my career. I got a solid background in the classroom and an opportunity to do hands-on work in my field while I was still a student.
“My sister Holly, who also graduated from PNC, and I worked together while we were still students to organize a drive to collect school supplies for deserving Duneland elementary students. The response from both the community and school officials was overwhelmingly positive and we collected and distributed about $600 in school supplies.
“I was a member of the PNC Chancellor’s Leadership Seminar which gave me a unique opportunity to learn about leadership, meet our community leaders and gain a new perspective on issues.
”PNC helped me fulfill my intentions to work as a child advocate. I would like to continue on to law school and eventually have a career in law, continuing to work on behalf of children in need.”
