  • HPOG Success Story: Samantha at Central Community College

    Published: November 18, 2019
    Samantha was raised in Columbus, NE, as the youngest of five sisters in a single parent household. Her childhood was marked by struggles with anxiety, depression, and a learning disability that impacted her ability to read, spell, and write. She let none of this hold her back and graduated from Columbus High School in 2010. Even then she knew that she wanted to be employed in the medical field. Armed with a goal, Samantha enrolled at Central Community College (CCC). Her roommate was a student in the nursing program. The more they talked, the more Samantha knew that nursing was the path for her. What she didn’t know was the climb she had in front of her. She took the classes needed to enter the nursing program, applied, and was placed on a two-year waitlist to start. In the meantime, she decided to obtain an Associate in Applied Science Degree and transfer to Midland University in the Fall of 2012, but struggled with her classes and did not pass her first semester.
