Attending Motlow improved my life and my family’s life. When I decided to go to college, I knew it would be a tough decision because of family and work demands.
Luckily, Motlow offers Adult College Express (ACE). It’s perfect for working adults. It complemented my schedule and allowed me to take on the challenge of college. The accessibility of Motlow in my hometown and the number of online courses available at Motlow allowed me to complete my general studies associate degree in two years and move forward to complete my four-year degree in accounting two years later at MTSU.
Motlow faculty taught me the importance of accounting in business as well as life in general. I wanted to study accounting because I wanted to understand how it affected the company I worked for and how other companies conduct business. I am thankful for the knowledge I gained at Motlow. It has given me a better approach to my work. I understand how my contributions affect the financial side of our company and have used this knowledge to better myself as well as my company. I am now the operations manager–enjoying the success my Motlow degree afforded me.
I also utilized my education in accounting to learn about government and budgeting. I ran for and won election as County Commissioner in my community and am in my second year. In this role, I use my Motlow education to serve my county and help my hometown plan. I currently serve on the Financial Management, Legislative, Safety, and Beer Board committees. My background in business grew stronger through my Motlow accounting coursework. It’s been a significant asset and I have found that many people look to me for information on budgeting processes work related to funding County Government. I am thankful I can utilize this knowledge and experience to serve others.
During my time at Motlow, I met new people and made lasting friendships that impacted me and my life. Motlow can help anyone who is looking for an opportunity or a change because education is something you can utilize forever. I would recommend Motlow to anyone, whether they want to pursue traditional classes or explore the ACE program for adults. I am genuinely thankful for the knowledge and experience Motlow provided. I think everyone without a degree should consider going back to college. I am grateful for my experience at Motlow. It is knowledge no one can take from me.
