Ashley Porter

A.A. Degree
Class of 2014

“I came to Harold Washington College because I felt that community college was ‘doable.’ I had been out of school for a few years and was juggling work and life as a newly single mom. It was easy to make community college work for me. It gave me the tools to take the small steps necessary in order to continue towards all of my goals. With the confidence and education I have acquired here, I am looking forward to pursuing my bachelor's degree and then my master's degree in social work."  






Courtney Shepherd

Education is the foundation of the standards I want to set for my children. When I finished my five years with the Marine Corps, I enrolled in Harold Washington College. I’ve benefited from the great instructors here as well as the support of student services like Career Planning & Placement Center which helped me land an internship at Aon, my first job in the corporate world. I'm now pursuing my bachelor's degree in marketing at Roosevelt University.”
