When Lyndsay Squier started taking classes at CCV three years ago, she was full of doubt. She’d been told that she would never succeed in school. She was trying to get out of an unhealthy relationship. She wanted to go to college but wasn’t sure she could afford it. Beneath many layers of doubt, she also had a dream of going to law school.

What’s Your Story?
CCV Now will continue to produce conversations between academic coordinators and their students. If you have a compelling story that would work well in this format, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lyndsay reluctantly started classes at CCV-Rutland. She met Tammy Davis, a coordinator of academic services, and asked for her help. The two quickly developed a strong relationship, and Lyndsay credits much of her success at CCV to Tammy’s support. Lyndsay graduated last month with a degree in human services after having completed internships with Rutland’s Department of Probation and Parole and the Rutland State’s Attorney. This summer she is employed at the State’s Attorney’s office, and she will begin a degree in criminal justice at Castleton University in the fall.
To celebrate Lyndsay’s graduation, the two had lunch at Table 24, a popular eatery around the corner from CCV-Rutland. They chatted about Lyndsay’s story, Tammy’s support, and the dream that now seems within reach.
