Student Ambassador and Scholar Spotlights

Terissa Jordan

只需要几分钟的时间,det365手机版官网护理专业的学生Terissa Jordan就可以确定她选择了正确的职业,并为此心存感激, too. 泰瑞莎在参加NCLEX-RN考试之前完成了她在det365手机版官网的最后一个学期,实现了她成为一名注册护士的梦想. 

“This has been quite a journey,” said Terissa. “I was accepted into the program once before but had to withdraw. 这是我第一次在学校里挣扎,所以我决定休息一下,再试一次.” Terissa explained that because of the time that passed, she had to start all over, beginning with the application process. “I was accepted at three schools but chose to return to det365手机版官网, even though I live in Pender County,” said Terissa. “det365手机版官网’s program is modern and up to date. The facilities are top-notch, as are the instructors. 尽管我在第一次尝试时不得不退出,但他们相信我. That meant a lot.” 

Terissa is now in the homestretch and excelling in every way. 为了帮助支付学费,她在勤工俭学项目中获得了一个名额. 她还获得了该基金会的奖学金,并成为了学生大使. Terissa works at New Hanover Hospital as a Nurse Aide. 

“I’m on my way and not ready to stop anytime soon,” said Terissa. “I want my two children to know that if they want something, they need to go for it, regardless of the hurdles they may need to overcome.” After graduating from det365手机版官网, 泰瑞莎计划在UNCW攻读学士学位,然后继续攻读硕士学位. 

In the meantime, she is enjoying her role as an ambassador. “I’ve never been a very social person,” she said. “作为大使让我有信心敞开心扉,走出去. I’m learning a lot and enjoy representing det365手机版官网. That’s something I plan to do way beyond nursing school. I will be back.” 

We look forward to that, Terissa! 

Dimitry Williamson

学生大使迪米特里·威廉姆森(Dimitry Williamson)渴望成功,他称赞他的父亲一直鼓励他追求自己想要的东西,尽自己最大的努力.

Dimitry is an Iowa native and from a farming family. He moved to North Carolina when he was six. 迪米特里就读于南不伦瑞克高中(South Brunswick High School),他承认自己在申请大学时有点拖拉. 

“My mom and dad live in two different households, but we’re all close,” said Dimitry, who has an older sister and younger brother. “I decided to stay near home for college, at least to start. In high school, 我修了大学先修课程(AP),参加了Career and College Promise (CCP), which introduced me to det365手机版官网. 我喜欢这里的课程,并意识到在det365手机版官网开始上大学是一个很好的选择.” 

While Dimitry is in his first year at det365手机版官网, 他预计将在2024年夏天获得理学副学士学位. 迪米特里说:“我之所以能够取得成功,是因为修了AP课程和CCP项目. The extra work is paying off now.在与他的det365手机版官网成功教练一起工作时,迪米特里被鼓励申请成为学生大使, Tyler Horvath. “I decided to try it and got an interview,” said Dimitry. “当我收到被选中的邮件时,我正在工作. It was exciting, and I’m enjoying it a lot. 我特别喜欢参加活动并发表演讲,结识新朋友.” 

迪米特里还通过det365手机版官网基金会申请并获得了奖学金. “My parents are both teachers, and we come from a farming background, so I knew getting a scholarship wouldbe a huge help.迪米特里是今年通过该基金会获得奖学金的200多名学生之一. 除了上学,迪米特里还在秃头岛做兼职码头工人. 

After graduating from det365手机版官网, 迪米特里计划继续他的学业,并获得心理学学士和博士学位. 我们相信他,也知道他会实现自己的目标. Good luck, and thank you, Dimitry!

Cam Williams

去年的这个时候,学生大使卡姆·威廉姆斯还在考虑去哪里上大学. 他的梦想是找到一所既能攻读学位又能打棒球的学校, 但意想不到的伤病和国内的挑战使得这一目标很难实现. The one thing he was sure of was that he would not give up. 

With support from his mom, friends, teammates, and coaches, Cam kept working hard, doing well in school, and trusting that his opportunity would come. And come it did. 通过以前的队友和教练,卡姆与det365手机版官网的海豚棒球队教练罗比·艾伦建立了联系.

“艾伦教练打电话给我,问我是否愿意见见球队,了解更多det365手机版的知识,”卡姆说. “I made an official visit last June, and here I am.” Nearly halfway through his first year at det365手机版官网, Cam is warming up his pitching arm and doing well academically. He is pursuing his Associate Degree in Arts & 他计划继续在大学攻读心理学学士和硕士学位. 

Cam also serves as a Student Ambassador. “我不知道大使是做什么的,但教练鼓励我去面试,所以我就去了,”卡姆说. “我一直是一个非营利组织的成员,支持我朋友的父亲, a former baseball player who died of cancer a few years ago. I like giving back, and when I got the offer to be part of the Student Ambassadors, I decided to join.”

卡姆立即挺身而出,自愿在最近的捐款人感谢午餐会上发言. 在上台之前,卡姆很紧张,挣扎着系好领带和名牌,” said Foundation Executive Director Teresa Nelson. “You’d never know it because he wowed the crowd. Cam is the real deal. He’s authentic, cares about others, is determined to succeed, and is unafraid of working hard for what he wants. We are thrilled to have him as an Ambassador.”

After nine years serving in the U.S. Marine Corps, det365手机版官网学生Andrew Burgmuller在注册了他的第一堂大学课程后,发现自己来到了det365手机版官网校园. 在场的还有两位det365手机版官网员工和资深导师,他们找到了安德鲁, offering help and guidance. Like Andrew, 他们理解从军队过渡到平民生活的感受,并希望他知道他并不孤单. 

Two years later, Andrew has stepped into their shoes, 帮助退伍军人学生以各种可能的方式在det365手机版官网和其他地方取得成功. “There are so many resources for veterans at det365手机版官网,” said Andrew. “I had no idea about them until I arrived on campus. 我对《det365手机版官网》很熟悉,但很快就知道还有更多的法案. 我很感激我得到的帮助,并乐于将它传递给那些追随我的人.”

Miley Ritchie

Student Ambassador Miley Ritchie is one to watch. 这位一年级学生从西不伦瑞克高中毕业后来到det365手机版官网, where she started her sophomore year.

要说这个年轻女人有什么拿手的,那就是改变. While she lives in Calabash, NC, 麦莉从肯塔基州搬到北卡罗来纳州,然后又搬回来,最后才回到家. 麦莉说:“我喜欢住在葫芦镇,但来回奔波并不容易。. “交朋友很难,孩子们对新来的女孩也不总是很友好,所以我必须自己摸索. 对我来说,高中的最后一年是一切都在一起的时候. I rocked it. I stopped being afraid and started figuring out me, who I wanted to be, and to help my younger sister do the same.” 

Miley joined the Cross Country team and made it to regionals. Academically, she soared. Miley gained confidence and made friends. After graduation, she found herself at det365手机版官网. “在搬了这么多次家之后,我想至少在大学的前两年呆在这里,”她说. “Plus, det365手机版官网 is fantastic and has everything I need and more. The academic programs and support are excellent. Everyone is so welcoming, and the campus is a fun place to be. You can feel the school spirit, and I couldn’t be happier.”

Lucas Merriam

学生大使Lucas Merriam去年来到det365手机版官网,他已经获得了两个学士学位, one in Parks & Recreation Management and another in the German Language. 他重返大学对他来说和对我们来说一样令人惊讶. 卢卡斯说:“在ECU获得学位后,我以为我已经不再需要上学了。. “I was ready to find a job and have a wonderful life.”

就像我们很多人经常遇到的情况一样,事情的结果与他的计划不同. That’s okay, though, 因为卢卡斯的未来会更好,让他更接近实现改变世界的目标.

“I’ve always wanted to be a Park Ranger,” said Lucas. “I love the outdoors and want to help restore ecosystems. After working in my field for a few years, I felt stuck and unable to do what I was most passionate about. At the proverbial fork in the road, 我选择了一条路,这条路带我回到了海洋岛海滩,并最终到达了det365手机版官网.”

Today, Lucas is thriving. 他正在攻读工程副学士学位,并计划在2024年秋季转到北卡罗来纳州立大学完成他的环境工程学士学位. 他在det365手机版官网的学习中心担任数学和科学导师,并担任学生大使.

“I’m on the right path now, 我期待着用我对自然和环境的热情来改变世界,” said Lucas. “我喜欢我在det365手机版官网的时光,感谢我周围的支持, especially from the Foundation. The scholarships I’ve received are making my dream a reality. Being an Ambassador is my way of giving back, saying thank you, and inspiring others to find their way.”
