Adult Learner Success Stories



Linda Langston
Adult Learner

Linda Langston’s digital story documents the beginning of her journey back into education. “Life was too short. I had so much that I still wanted to do. I set a goal to finish school before my daughter graduated from high school. I tried to make up 101 reasons why I shouldn’t walk into the orientation, but it was the best decision I could make for myself.” Despite many life challenges, Linda got her diploma, joined the Adult Ed Ambassadors Leadership program, completed her Behavioral Health Services certificate at Pima Community College, and joined PCC AmeriCorps. Now, she is working towards a degree in social work. She serves as an ambassador doing outreach to the community, mentoring other students, and advocating for our programs.
