I returned to school because I needed a degree. I didn’t finish college after going to high school. I went to work and kind of felt like working was more important than an education. Now that I’m in corporate America and seeing people pass me up for opportunities – It was time.  - Nancy Simmons, Applied Organizational Leadership
