NC eLearning Success Stories

Jessica Powell

Jessica Powell

Healthcare System Manager

Location: Boone, NC
Degree / Program: Bachelor of Arts in Spanish & Business

Finishing my degree was an important personal goal, but I wasn’t sure how I could accomplish it until I began to explore my options for completing my classes online. Working full-time and juggling family responsibilities does not leave much free time for going to a traditional classroom. Online classes at Surry Community College and Caldwell Community College allowed me to go to school when I otherwise would not have been able to. I took classes online which fit into my schedule, at home and at work. It also saved me time from traveling back and forth to school. These online classes allowed me to finish my Associate in Arts Degree at Caldwell. I then transferred to Appalachian State University where I am majoring in Spanish and minoring in Business. At ASU, I have only been able to take just a few classes a semester but I am graduating this December with my Bachelor’s degree. Online classes provided the avenue for earning my degree as well as helping me to achieve my personal and career goals. I now work as the Donor Relations Manager for Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, which I love!
