“That is when I discovered the calling to make a difference and impact others in a positive way,” Jones said.
The Danielson Learning Center made a difference in Michelle White’s life. The 2006 alumna enrolled at the New Castle campus six years after graduating high school. She had grown up in Henry County, 15 miles from the center. As a single mother of one, in addition to working two jobs, the local campus was the most conducive option for her to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
Kenneth A. Ritchie II, ’09, was an undergraduate with a full-time schedule in and out of the classroom. During the day, he worked full-time at the Henry County Hospital as a radiology technologist. Following his shift, he would drive three miles across New Castle to the Danielson Learning Center for evening classes in order to complete a Bachelor of Science in Biology degree.
At the time, the father of two was working full time at Ameriana Bank, located just next door to the Danielson Center. He said the classes and the material he studied made an immediate impact and he could use it in his day-to-day work.
