Susan Overton spends her days helping Kindergarten, First, and Second Graders discover the joy of reading. A graduate of the Henderson Community College and Murray State University two plus two program in Elementary Education, Susan was able to complete her degree without ever leaving Henderson.
"Henderson Community College is a family tradition" says Susan whose parents, aunts, uncles, and many cousins have all taken advantage of the convenience and flexibility of attending Henderson Community College. Overton also speaks with pride about having her grandmother present on the day she graduated from Henderson Community College.
The best thing about Henderson Community College for Susan was the hometown feeling she found on campus. She goes on to explain, "I knew many of the professors and staff, and most of the students. I felt at home the entire time I attended HCC."
Susan's future plans are to complete her master's degree in elementary education in 2011. After that she plans to pursue a degree in library science from Western Kentucky University.
And to think, it all started right here at Henderson Community College. Susan is proud to say that "Henderson Community College was the beginning of the rest of my life!"
