The chair Darius McKay says he expects students to be encouraged and motivated. Lack of funds should not keep you back from furthering your education. He also says "there are multiple avenues in order to be funded, scholarship opportunities so we want to be another way for them to go to college so that’s the reason why and then also be encouraged and inspired by our guest speaker who grew up in this area and now is doing a fantastic job in her current position ."
