BRIDGEPORT, WV – Business student Sydney Fairburn decided to attend West Virginia Junior College because it’s close to home and a small school, she said.
“I get a lot of one-on-one attention from instructors, and everyone is so willing to help,” Sydney said. “(I feel) like I am a part of something. I love it here.”
Sydney also likes that she only has two classes to focus on for six weeks at a time.
After taking a lot of business classes in high school, she said she always knew she wanted to work in a business setting.
Once she graduates, Sydney wants to get a job that will allow advancement opportunities.
“I am striving to be in a management position within a few years after graduation,” she said.
There are a few people Sydney would like to thank for their support in her continuing education.
“I would like to thank Ms. Spears who has been one of my most influential instructors in my time at WVJC,” Sydney said. “I would also like to thank Adam Pratt who helped through the whole college admissions process after high school. Most importantly, I would like to thank my Mom who is my main supporter in my education.”
