"I do not think I would have gone back to school if it wasn't for the support and faith that my counselors have had in me. My program director took a leap of faith in me and I am unable to put into words how much confidence this has given me in pursuing my dream of earning my Master's degree. I can say that becoming a Wildcat has become one of the most amazing milestones in my life and graduating from ACU is no longer just a dream. I am turning it into a reality day by day and I know I have an amazing support system within the school to help me along the way."
