Meet Brooke James, a first-generation college graduate who jump-started her collegiate career with dual enrollment courses. She continued her studies at Penn Highlands and earned an associate degree, saving thousands of dollars along the way. Brooke graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice, which was put to good use in the banking world. Not long after, she was offered a full-time banking position and never looked back. Brooke credits Pennsylvania Highlands Community College with giving her the foundation she needed for her career.
“The number one thing that stood out for me was affordability. College tuition was something that I needed to pay for out of my own pocket and I knew that it was going to be challenging for me. Penn Highlands allowed me to have a budget-friendly tuition and I was also able to work during college.”
