Van Fryman attended 15 different schools before graduating from high school. “I grew up moving around the U.S. with my family,” he says. “My mom and dad were divorced. My dad was in the military, my mom was a gypsy.” He went to a new school practically every year.

Robyn St. Peter never thought college was in her future. She worked as a firefighter, an EMT, and a special education paraprofessional. She raised four children. Two years ago, while working as an LNA at UVM Medical Center, she realized that college could be part of her life after all.
