Student Success Stories
Evelyn Patino
Truman College
Evelyn Patino has heard all of the misconceptions about what it means to be an early childhood educator. One of her biggest pet peeves is hearing from others that teachers in an early childhood classroom are simply ‘babysitting’ kids all day with minimal teaching. She also hears that people assume teachers in an early childhood...

As a student at Juarez High School, Nataly Hernandez figured she would go right to a four-year university. But at the last minute, she decided to take advantage of the Star Scholarship – which paid for her tuition and books as she completed her associate degree. As she graduates this semester from Daley College, Nataly...
Jesse Brito
Malcolm X College

Paul Wandless
Harold Washington College

Jennifer Jackson
Malcolm X College
When it comes to getting ahead, Malcolm X College Advisor Jennifer Jackson often shares three keys for success with her students: networking, communication, and responsibility.
