Quotes

  • “I think a lot of us figured we would come to Yavapai, take some classes, and get our degree. For some of us that journey was pretty smooth, for others it was long and rocky. For all of us, it took persistence and dedication, but this was never supposed to be the final destination. It shouldn't, it won't end here.”
