Barbara S. Calhoun, Dean College of Continuing and Professional Education

LEARNING NEVER ENDS Continuing education programs offer something for everyone. The heart of our College is professional development, and our variety of programs is designed to take you from your first career and beyond. Delores Armstead is a woman who truly understands the power of lifelong learning. She was inspired by her daughter, a KSU student, and decided to explore continuing ed courses to hone her skills. Delores started with Microsoft Office courses and earned her first professional certificate. After taking a few courses in our Paralegal Certificate program, Delores transitioned into the Administrative Professional program. Successful completion of this course combined with the knowledge gained from the Paralegal courses proved to be advantageous – Delores was hired as a member of a legal affairs team. She said the Administrative Professional course provided her with the confidence in her professional role, and she has her eyes set on completing the Paralegal certificate. In her own words, “Education is vital to success.” It’s this type of positive thinking and initiative that is beneficial in our lives, both personally and professionally. Read more about Delores on page 7 and prepare to be inspired. You can also take a cue from her and consider the complementary nature of our online education programs. For example, position yourself as an in-demand office professional by completing the Administrative Assistant, Bookkeeper and Microsoft Office certificates. Introduction to Web Design and Graphic and Animations certificates could propel you to a long career in the technology industry. A Wedding Planner certificate combined with an Event Management and Design certificate could launch your career in the hospitality industry. These programs are stepping stones to building a successful career. Be fearless in your journey to the top!

PROFESSIONAL PROGRESSION Administrative Professional Graduate Increases Her Workplace Worth

The coursework has given me greater confidence and effectiveness in that I can meet and exceed the expectations set forth in my position.

- Delores Armstead, Administrative Professional Graduate

“Education never stops.”

Reflecting more on her experience in the Administrative Professional program, Armstead said it allowed her to enhance the level of excellence and diligence needed to support key attorneys and their direct reports by effectively managing key priorities. “The coursework has given me greater confidence and effectiveness in that I can meet and exceed the expectations set forth in my position,” she said. “More importantly, it has allowed me to communicate with others by enhancing my communications skills, productivity and my professional development to build a network outside of legal affairs. My interpersonal skills have been strengthened, producing improved working relationships with colleagues at all levels.”

This is one of the many credos valued by Delores Armstead. The quintessential example of a lifelong learner, Armstead discovered Kennesaw State after her daughter began attending as an undergraduate. The Oxford, N.C., native knew she wanted to pursue a career that matched her strengths. “I’ve always had great secretarial and computer skills,” she said. Once again, due to her daughter’s influence, Armstead found herself at KSU Center – home of the College of Continuing and Professional Education (CCPE). In an effort to sharpen her computer skills, Armstead earned her Microsoft Office certificate. The program is comprised of classes in Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access. Upon completion, she decided to pursue a legal interest and began work in our Paralegal certificate program. After finishing a few of the program’s required 13 classes, Armstead landed a full-time role as a member of a legal affairs team. She entered that position with an extensive background in law office management and legal support experience with corporate in-house counsel, shareholders and law firms – based on her past employment and continuing education course work.

When asked about the most important aspects she learned in the course, Armstead cited calendar management, effective correspondence, memorandums, preparing a filing system, effective PowerPoint presentations, customer service, honing computer skills, organizational abilities, and expense reporting and developing a travel portfolio for the executive. Armstead boasted, “I have gained a wealth of knowledge in office efficiency taught by some amazing instructors. It has certainly attributed to effective learning, success-building techniques and strategies that are vital in achieving workplace goals and objectives.”

Armstead’s first order of business was to request permission from her supervisor to complete our Paralegal program. Instead, he recommended CCPE’s Administrative Professional certificate course. Previously unaware of the class, Armstead is now thankful for the opportunity it presented. “The course was so informative and very detailed,” she said. “Nothing went uncovered.”

As she continues her journey in lifelong learning, Armstead plans to return to CCPE to complete her Paralegal certificate in an effort to become an even more valuable member of her organization.
