LWC Online graduate Princess Lyons with LWC President Bill Luckey at commencement

I am a 37-year-old, divorced mother of three. I’ve worked in the human service field for 10 years. However, I wanted to set an example for my children that they can accomplish anything they set their minds to and at any age! More importantly, I wanted to finish my education to prove to myself that I could do it!

Lindsey Wilson’s online Human Services and Counseling Program has changed the quality of my life, and the future for myself and my children. I was already working at DCBS for Protection and Permanency and upon completion of my degree, I hope to obtain a position with the state as a Social Services Worker. I’m very grateful!
