Follow Suit with an Online M.Ed.

By Heather Ward

This summer has been very busy with school, work, and two of my oldest children leaving for college – one is headed to Colorado in August, and the other one is headed to Ohio. These are exciting times. Without the convenience of Lamar’s program, I could not juggle all I do. Also, working toward my master’s degree has been a great example to my children. Not to mention, I have learned so much in my Clinical Mental Health Program that has helped me even in my personal life.

As the summer presses onward, I have one-and-a-half more weeks left of my summer class. Then, the next five-week class will begin shortly thereafter. By the end of the summer, I will be more than a third of the way through the program. This is exciting news. It will be gratifying next year to say I finished this online graduate program. I have encouraged many of my friends to follow suit. Hopefully, they will. Improving my life and my career path is well worth all the hours spent.
