“The question is not, ‘Do you have time?’ The question is, ‘How bad do you want it?’ I had my plate full when pursuing my degree…Three boys in high school, a campaigning husband, and a large handful of volunteer commitments kept me busy. Then I went back to school. But, I was at a place in my career that I would struggle to advance further without a degree. Thanks to the Jackson EMC Educational Assistance Program, I got that chance. Now I have a degree in Business Administration, and I am more prepared to take the next step in my career with the cooperative.”

“Going back to school for a master’s degree has been very challenging yet rewarding. While taking classes and completing homework at night and on the weekends, I’ve still managed to complete my daily workload, participate on a Strategic Initiative Team, as well as prepare for implementation of a new software program. And there are many other employees who have juggled the same or more! I’ve been overwhelmed, but I’m also reminded just how important it is to continue growing personally and professionally. Much of my classwork has been applied to my professional life, and I tend to need the information during the semester I’m receiving it. I’m very grateful that Jackson EMC offers such a wonderful opportunity to its employees. Tuition reimbursement has been an absolute blessing!”
