Student Success Stories

Deenae Dingee graduation headshot
"Thirteen years ago, I began pursuing my college education. As a military spouse with three small kids, I'd focused on growing my family, setting school aside. Feeling stuck in my career and seeking to grow, I enrolled in Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. Working full time with three kids, I took it one class at a time. And that pace paid off! Today, I'm finally earning that diploma at age 34. With my husband graduating as well, our kids will see firsthand how hard work pays off. My heart is full; I'm thankful to have had such an awesome growth opportunity."
Whether it's a degree, a certification or an individual course, if it makes sense for your career path, why not continue learning?
