During my son Nicholas’ second year at Third Street Academy, I was offered a job at Third Street in May 2017 as a part-time administrative assistant. I was currently going to school full time at Edgecombe Community College, so a part-time job seemed to fit right in my schedule, and I could be closer to my son during the day. During the 2017-2018 school year, I was offered a job as the Accounts Payable clerk, and I was so pleased because this gave me hands-on training that I could use towards my degree. I just received my Associates Degree in Applied Science for Accounting. In the fall, I plan to attend East Carolina University to obtain my bachelors degree in Accounting while minoring in criminal justice and business administration.
