|Whose Life Are You Changing?|
Maybe you have a family member who would benefit from an Averett education! Wanda Haynes, administrative assistant to faculty, believes that to be the case. She recently referred her daughter-in-law to the admissions office as someone they could recruit. Thank you, Wanda, for trying to change a life!
Whose life are you changing? Like Wanda, please encourage someone to consider enrolling for a degree program at Averett (adult or high school student) or simply forward their name, address and phone number to Dr. Stuart Jones. Remember to also tell Stuart about your efforts to change a life by emailing him your story today.
