Both JD and Laura were searching for practical degrees that offered them opportunities for jobs immediately after graduation. JD graduated Highline College with his AA and is continuing his education at Highline pursing a four-year degree and continuing to grow the relationships he cultivated with his professors. Laura Garcia decided to return to school after finding herself struggling to make ends meet. She plans on graduating this June and becoming a licensed registered respiratory therapist.

“Highline is setting me up very well to actually go out in the field and work. Just talking to people who graduated last June before me they’re all working. They’re all working in the very same hospitals I’m volunteering at right now.”
