A Stop Start Story Of Success; Hortencia Diaz

"I Can Honestly Say, 
Everything I Needed 
To Learn In Order To 
Succeed I Learned
At COD."

Hortencia Diaz , Class of 2005 
(GED and AA in English)
During my freshman year of high school I decided to drop out of school and look for a job. I always regretted my decision but didn't feel I had what it took to go back and secure an education.

In my 30's, I decided to give it a try and walked onto the College of the Desert campus. I was scared and nervous, to say the least. However, I quickly saw that I had tremendous support from all the staff and within a very short period of time I secured a GED and within two years I was walking across the stage to receive an AA in English.
