            Never Give UpI graduated from High School in 1985, started my ten year plan for college sone after, and left the East coast degree-less in 1992 to find my future on the West coast where I was born. My life after that has roller coasted thru such great peaks and lows that I find it hard to put to words. What I can say, with all sincerity, is that UMUC gave me the opportunity to bring my life back to a viable state. Thirty-six years after my graduation from High School, UMUC was by my side when I graduated from college. UMUC never gave up on me or my education and thus gave me my life back. My decision to go back to finish my undergraduate work was the turning point in my life and is still helping me to never give up on my self. Thank you UMUC, and if my Father was still with us, he would thank you even more for not giving upon me. So, there is no reason for anyone to give up on their education when the University of Maryland University College is opening the doors to a degree and a better future. Never give up.
