MOORHEAD - Angela Wilson attends Mississippi Delta Community College’s Greenwood campus and was selected as the Adult Education Department’s Student of the Month for June. Angela is also enrolled in the MDCC Mi-Best program, which prepares students to succeed in school and compete in the workforce by working on technical and basic skills education. Wilson registered in March and earned her high school equivalency diploma on June 28. 

Her fast progress in the program is a true testament to her dedication to completing her high school education. Wilson’s instructors say she is one of the hardest working students they have encountered in the program.

Her daily routine starts at 3:00 a.m. when her alarm clock sounds. Why so early you ask? It’s because she works the morning shift at McDonalds. 

After her shift, she attends class and works hard to prepare for her tests. However, Wilson’s hard work doesn’t end when class does. She leaves campus headed home to care for her son for whom she is the sole provider.

Wilson never complains about her workload, but instead uses it as motivation to better herself and her family. Now that she has passed her GED test and received her HSE, she plans to enroll in the Health Care Assistant program at MDCC with the Mi-Best program. Wilson then plans to continue her education and seek a career in nursing.

She started the path to completely change her life just a few months ago and others can have the same opportunity. On July 9, MDCC’s Adult Education program has a new registration at all of its campuses. For more information, call 662-246-6524.
