Burke Collegiate Scholar Success Stories

“I am so proud to be a student of Western Piedmont Community College.  With the help of the Western Piedmont Foundation I am graduating this spring and becoming a Certified Medical Assistant.  Since middle school ETS/BCS has assisted me with deciding on which college I should go to, what career path I should choose and also helped me with applications and financial aid.  Without their help I would be so lost and confused.  The counselors are very helpful and patient and have guided and supported me through school.  I hope more students benefit from the ETS/BCS program by graduating from WPCC and succeeding in life!”  Lida Vang
