Student Success: Misty Beardsley

Misty Beardsley,
Business Management grad
Today's success story features a brief Q and A with Misty Beardsley. Misty is a Workforce Education student enrolled in the Business Management program at Green River. This degree option allowed Misty to build on her experience in management, and also helped her acquire new skills.

She graduates this summer and can't wait to start a rewarding career. Misty's future plans might also include enrolling in Green River's brand new Bachelor of Applied Science program in Marketing and Entrepreneurship.

Hi Misty, thanks for joining us on the blog. What's it like being a student in the Business Management program at Green River?

Misty: The Business Management program has been amazing. I have great professors that truly care about my success and strive to help me reach my goals. I have been blessed in being able to participate in Green River's courses, and am so happy that I took this step in my life.

What lead you to pursue training in this particular field?

Misty: I have history in business management and to keep moving forward in my career, it just made sense to get my AAA degree in Business Management and to gain new skills, as well as solidify the old.

How has Workforce Education helped you achieve your goals?

Misty: Workforce Education has helped me by offering to help with tuition and books. Without which I would have struggled and probably would have been unable to complete my degree. I am thankful for all the people in the office that have helped me answer questions, or figure out what else I needed to do to complete my many quarters at Green River with success.

You graduate this summer--big congrats. What are your future plans after Green River?

Misty: Thank you! My future consists of finding a career that will utilize as well as challenge all the skills that I have to offer. I would like to find a stable position within a company that will allow growth and that I would be happy to be a part of. Who knows--Green River may see me back among students going for the new Bachelors degree in Marketing and Entrepreneurship!
