I am primarily located at the Ƶ Campus, but you will see me around at our other campuses and mainly at our local Area and Technology Centers that we serve. I am a proud 2019 graduate of Augusta Independent. I decided to transition from a Dual Credit student to a full-time student at Ƶ. In 2021, I graduated from Ƶ with an AA and AS. I am currently pursuing a Bachelors degree in Business at Morehead State University.

Ƶ gave me opportunities that I never knew were available. Their kindness and generosity inspired a change for me to help students. There is always more out there than the “boundary” that people make you believe that you’re in. It’s astonishing how a certificate, diploma, associate degree, etc. can change your life significantly!”
