THEN: Living in a small travel trailer with no running water or electricity with her two daughters. Terri realized that an education was the only way to a better life. She turned to CTC, where she enrolled in the health careers course and

  • Earned her certified nursing assistant, home health aide, phlebotomy and licensed practical nurse certifications.
  • Acquired relationships that helped her survive and thrive.
  • Developed an optimistic outlook on life with a drive to succeed.

NOW: While attending classes at CTC, Terri’s travel trailer was destroyed in an ice storm. Through help from classmates and friends, Terri received food, supplies and enough money for the deposit and first month’s rent in her own apartment. She is now an LPN at Truman Healthcare and Rehab in Lamar, Mo. and enjoys a stable life with her children.
