Congratulations to Samantha Berry [Gorham Adult Education]


I am excited and proud to announce Samantha Berry's graduation from University of Phoenix with a BS in Business.  She is an inspiration for anyone who is struggling with juggling all things "adult" while working toward a college degree.  It is never easy.  Samantha said in her posting, "Proud moment.  I stuck with school through two pregnancies, and my mom's death, a move to and from Maine and didn't take a break! I am proud of myself but very thankful for those who have helped me along the way."

Samantha became a member of Gorham Adult Education's family in 2003.  She was determined to finish high school while struggling with many challenges in her private life.  And she did it.  In August 2005, she passed the GED and received her Maine High School Diploma.
