Success Story

“When I began attending Blue Ridge CTC, I had been out of school for several years. Earning a 2-year degree seemed like a manageable task. The support of my professors encouraged me to pursue my goal of becoming a lawyer. After earning my Business degree at Blue Ridge, I earned a 4-year degree, and was admitted to law school. I graduated Cum Laude and passed the bar exam on my first attempt. I am now practicing law in the state of West Virginia.

I credit a lot of my success to beginning my studies at Blue Ridge. Smaller class sizes and instructor feedback provided me with the best start to my educational career. My advice to students would be to expect a good education, remember to believe in yourself, and try hard. You can achieve your goals by starting at Blue Ridge CTC.”
