“At 16, I became a single teenage mother. I fought for years to overcome the hardships that came with my choices, and I was eager to become anything but the statistic I was destined to become. It’s important to have a college degree. I always wanted to be a nurse, so I chose CWI. I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to pursue my passion. It’s important for my son to see me do this too, so he can stay on the right track.” —Karee Wilson—In-Demand Workforce
