When I started at Valley I was barely getting on by government assistance. It was a difficult 9 months, but with the encouragement of a fabulous staff, I persevered. The students have become like a family and my time spent at Valley College will always be treasured. I graduated on a Thursday and got hired on a Friday. My life is so much better now. I have a full time job with a plethora of benefits. Valley College gave me the knowledge and tools needed to better my life for me and my family.
