many of the students at Saint Paul College, Rayna started her studies because
she wanted to change her
and make a better life for her family.
enrolling at Saint Paul College, Rayna was working at a local semi-conductor
company for over seven years, when she lost her job as a result of layoffs. She
realized that, without advancing her education, she would not have the skills
that employers require in today’s job market. She decided to enroll in the
electrical technology program at Saint Paul College.
A nontraditional student, Rayna returned to college at the age of 32, and she juggles
the demands of home while picking up jobs as a courier to make ends meet. Rayna
now thrives as a top student and she is passionate about what she is learning.
She is on track to graduate on time, in two years.
cost of tuition can be daunting. Integral to Rayna’s success in her educational
pursuits, and the achievements of many of our students, is the support received
through scholarships and grants.
