Twenty-seven years ago I was awarded this diploma from Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tennessee. After a lot of hard work, grace from God and the support of my mom and dad I was able to realize the dream of being a college graduate. This Associates of Arts degree opened up the path for my Bachelor’s from Middle Tennessee State University.
As Hiwassee College is closing next week I want to remember and salute all those there who helped me along the way. The friendships and relationships made there have are good. Without Hiwassee I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Thank you Hiwassee. Hiwassee all hail. Tigers forever.
