Quotes

  • “Never in my lifetime did I imagine getting a college degree. I received an Associates of Arts with honors in May and could not be more proud. This accomplishment gives me encouragement and strength to continue toward my educational goals at Northern Arizona University. Yavapai College has shown me that anything is possible.”

    -- Hannah Shelley, YC Graduate
