NEMCC 2015-2016 Student of the Year Nominee
Anna Glidewell, realized that without a GED, she would not be able to obtain a degree or her desired job, so she decided to enroll in NEMCC’s ABE and C2C Youth Program. After concluding the C2C program and obtaining her GED, Glidewell enrolled at NEMCC in August of 2014 as a Psychology major but later changed her major to Business Administration. Glidewell was recently honored in Washington, D.C. as one of the “top 10 in Marketing Management” during the national collegiate DECA competition representing NEMCC. After participating in the state DECA conference in Southaven Mississippi, she qualified to compete nationally after placing 1st in Business Research and 2nd in Market Management. In Washington, D.C. Glidewell completed the semi-finals and competed against 15 other finalists during the 2nd round of competition. “She was again called up on stage and placed in the top 10 in Marketing Management,” stated NEMCC Business and Management Marketing Tech Instructor, Vickie Huggins.
Anna graduated from NEMCC with an Associate’s Degree last week and plans to further her education at the University of Mississippi where she plans to double major in General Studies and Marketing/Corporate Relations. Anna’s dream is to work as a Director of Marketing and Public Relations in a hospital or public firm.
“I’ll never forget the relationships that I have built with my teacher and peers,” says Anna Glidewell. “This benefit will last a lifetime.”
