Sweepstakes Helps WGU Reach 6,000 Facebook Fans!

2/09/2011 3:34 pm

In December, WGU launched the Facebook “Like” Sweepstakes, which included a drawing for a Kindle reader. This week, WGU’s Facebook page counts more than 6,000 fans. Jessica Crawford from Warren, Pennsylvania! Jessica, a student in WGU’s Teachers College and one of our new Facebook fans, was selected in a random drawing and will receive a Kindle reader.

Jessica found WGU while searching online for a bachelor’s degree program in education. As a single mom working long hours, she decided to finish the degree she started 12 years ago. “The best part about being a WGU student is the freedom to work on my courses on my own time,” said Jessica. She loves having a mentor to keep her motivated and keeps a strict study schedule. By balancing school and family responsibilities, she expects to graduate within the next two years.

Jessica is earning her degree in Special Education and hopes to work as an educator in a local elementary school once she is finished with her online degree. “I now feel that I have the opportunity to fulfill the dream that I started over 12 years ago,” said Jessica. Once I receive my degree, I will have more time to spend with my son and my family.”
 
Congratulations Jessica!
