“I am so thankful to KCC for the scholarship and the opportunity given to me. My STEP coach and the ECE Advisor helped to put together my education plan for the Pathway Certificate. During the Spring Term 2018, I will be completing ECE Certificate. Thanks KCC for the opportunity that I was able to renew my teaching license and keep my current job”
