    The education I received here at Fortis made a great difference in my personal life. I found myself doing my homework with my daughter. My daughter started getting better grades. She was so proud of me going back to school.

    Katherine S.

    I gave in my graduation speech that FEAR stands for face everything and rise and even at 30 and two kids and being out of school for almost ten years I was still able to go back and I didn’t feel that I had lost that much time, I was able to get back into the groove of it and if you put your mind to something you can achieve it no matter what obstacles stand in front of you.
