Q&A with Experience VCC tuition winner Mildred Petate

Posted on June 1, 2017

News-Mildred-292-JPGIntroducing one of the luckiest attendees from last month’s Experience VCC open house! Mildred Petate won $500 towards VCC tuition after registering for the event and filling out our survey. We caught up with Mildred to find out what’s in store for her at VCC.

What do you do now?
I am currently working in a group home.

What program will you be enrolling in at VCC?
I am interested in the Renal Dialysis Technician program. 

Why did you choose this program?
I wanted to study again because I am a single parent and I welcome the idea of improving myself for my children and advancing in my career. It will be interesting to acquire the skills in this program. I’m also doing this for my father, who had kidney disease and was doing dialysis for many years.

How does it feel to win?
I am grateful to be part of this. It’s a real financial icebreaker for me to get started in this program.
