The One-Day-A-Week Saturday Program’s sole purpose is to help you succeed, and with the opportunities it provides you, both academically and professionally, you can accomplish anything.
Knowing at a young age my family couldn’t afford to pay for my higher education, I did not see college in my future, so I began working full-time at age 13. I tried many fields over the years to find one that I loved, and when I landed in health care, I saw a need I wanted to fulfill. Soon, I opened Independent Solutions to provide home health care to clients with traumatic and acquired brain injuries.
As my business took off, it was time for me to pursue my college education, and One-Day provided the accelerated program I needed to ensure my success as a student and an entrepreneur. Through an all-campus e-mail from Professor Lauren Way, I learned of the Harold Grinspoon Charitable Foundation’s Entrepreneurship Initiative, which honors regional college students and recent alumni who demonstrate their entrepreneurial spirit. The Foundation recognized me not once, but twice, for my nonprofit. I even took home the top honor, receiving an additional $1,000 cash prize for Independent Solutions.
From the moment I arrived, everyone at Bay Path has been extremely supportive, especially Dr. Way, who worked one-on-one with me, and encouraged and guided me through the awards process. It is truly wonderful to be part of a community that wants you to succeed.
Since arriving at Bay Path, Stacey has received countless recognition for her entrepreneurial skills.
