Synquis Harris was working part-time and living paycheck to paycheck. She dropped out of high school, but always told herself that she would go back and get her diploma. That's when she saw a commercial on YouTube about Penn Foster High School. Now she works as a Senior Account Administrator, having been promoted four times in the last two years. "I would recommend Penn Foster to anyone in the world. This school gave me a second chance to show my greatness and helped me succeed as an individual in life today," Synquis said. Listen to her story.
Coty was working as a veterinary assistant and manager for a small animal practice, but wanted more responsibility. She also wanted to broaden her knowledge about veterinary medicine and be able to legally perform procedures on the animals. Now, she applies the skills she learned to her every day work. "I'm constantly placing catheters, intubating, running anesthesia, and clipping in cleaning wounds. I learned all these at Penn Foster," Coty said. Now, Coty is a licensed veterinary technician. Listen to her story.
Brenda Castellano owns and operates Keystone Stars 4 Group Childcare located in Reading, Pennsylvania, and has been in the Early Childhood and Education field for over 30 years. Her business earned recognition in 2017 by winning the Reading Eagle’s Readers Choice Award for Best Daycare/Preschool. "I contribute my success to my husband for pushing me to continue my education and Penn Foster because without my Early Childhood Education Associate Degree I would not be as successful as I am today," she said. "Penn Foster has the flexibility I need as a business owner and mother." Brenda is currently enrolled in the Business Management Bachelor's Degree program.
