Older Students Going Back to School

By  | 

Barbara Armentor never imagined she'd be the head of the drafting department at Pennylane Homes. But five years ago at 38 she decided to go back to school and says it's paying off.

With more than a quarter of the students at SW Georgia Technical College over 30, non-traditional students say they feel good about their decision.

With her two degrees completed, Armentor says it has opened many doors for her, opportunities she couldn't have come by without a higher education.

As head of her department, Armentor hires new employees and has become a role-model for her four kids. She says anyone can accomplish anything as long as they put their minds to it, and she's living proof.
