Congratulations Schanel  Duncan!

Graduation statement:

It is never too late to begin again! Age is just the year you began your journey. Now at age 55 I have reached a goal I strived and faught hard to accomplish.

Obtaining higher education is very important to me and with dedication, perseverance and determination I am on my way to higher heights. I give special thanks to my family and friends for all the love, support and encouragement to keeping going. I’d also like to thank the SWIC staff, program

coordinator and fellow students for believing in my dream with me and helping me to see it come true. Most of all I thank God for the FAITH – Foundation Accepted In Time & Heart to trust and believe the process. To all the graduates I say congratulations and keep moving forward to the next level. To Instructor, Carolyn Beal and Dean, Dr. Mary Ruettgers, thank you so much for the opportunity to

better myself as an Early Childhood Professional working in a Home-based Early Childhood Program. I am forever grateful. In moving forward, I say no matter where you are in your life’s journey you can always begin again. GRADUATION means Gradually Reaching After Dreams Using Affirmative Tools Indicative Of Negotiation. I now claim the Victory! Thank you.” – Duncan
