Many of you know that on select Thursdays this blog offers testimonials from American School students or graduates. Many of those comments come to us courtesy of surveys and reaction sheets that students send to us after completing a course. Today's testimonial, however, comes from someone who stopped by our booth at the THSC Southwest Convention and Family Conference last month in The Woodlands, Texas. After meeting with American School President Gary R. Masterton, Susan emailed us earlier this week, and what follows in the next paragraph are her exact words.
"I had no idea that I would put a face with the high school that I graduated from over 30 years ago. I had a great experience with American School. I had been enrolled in a private schol and was a freshman, but it was not accredited and so I started over at the age of 15 when I enrolled in American School. I received my diploma shortly after I turned 17. I worked a year to pay for college and enrolled in the fall of 1984. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in consumer economics in the fall of 1988. I have been a public school administrator since 1990. I have told many people about American School and will continue to do so. I know this will seem hard to believe, but I still have my textbook on how to repair household items. It really came in handy over the years. Again, it was a pleasure meeting you and I know American School will continue to help students be successful in life."
We thank Susan for stopping by our booth and for expressing those sentiments. Normally at conventions we meet prospective students and their families, but it's beneficial for us to meet current or past students as well so that we can hear first-hand what we do well and what needs improvement. We want all of our current and future students to have the same feeling about us as Susan does three decades after graduating. Enroll today and we'll do our best to ensure you're as successful in life as she is.
