Stephanie B. Morgan was an honors student in high school who had every intention of graduating on time. She went through a difficult time, and after becoming a single mother, was unable to complete her high school education. She worked numerous minimum wage jobs to support herself and her son. She knew that she was capable of more and wanted to prove that she could achieve her goals despite having dropped out of high school. Stephanie attended daily classes, taught by Elaine Williams, at Southeastern Tech’s Center for Adult Education in Millen and, after only four weeks, passed the GED tests.

Earning her GED credential gave Stephanie a completely new attitude toward life and renewed her sense of self worth. She enrolled at Savannah Technical College and then transferred to Armstrong Atlantic State University (AASU) in January 2007. It has been a long, difficult journey to this point, but Stephanie knows that she would not be where she is today if she had not made the decision to earn her GED credential and continue her education. Stephanie will graduate from AASU in May 2010 with a bachelor of science in nursing and plans to attend graduate school so that she can accomplish her goal of becoming a nurse practitioner.

Also this summer, the International Association of Administrative Professionals, Georgia Division, held its 55th Annual Meeting in Alpharetta, Georgia. 

All year student chapter members prepare for the competition by accumulating points for participation in service and community projects and by conducting and attending meetings.  The competition also requires a written essay and public speaking.

The STC Student Chapter sent two competitors to the meeting: Pashion Williams and Sheila Dolan.  Ms. Williams is the current President of the STC Student Chapter and Mrs. Dolan is the Historian.

“It is an honor to win this award and I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more than Pashion,” said Ms. Valerie Kasay, Business Administrative Technology instructor.  “She demonstrates excellence in everything that she does.  I believe that she has a bright future as an administrative professional.”

Pashion Williams also won the Newnan-Coweta Student Chapter Member of the Year Award and a check for $100 dollars.
