David Sexton: My Cecil Story

"I came to Cecil to earn my associate degree in a way that was affordable and to complete the first two years of my college education debt-free. It has definitely been well beyond show up, take your class, go home, and do your homework. I have been involved on campus in a variety of ways.

My professors were kind, funny, dedicated and very supportive of students. I have become a more knowledgeable, empathetic and well-rounded person. I have a lot more gratitude and appreciation for my community and the area I live in, and Cecil has been a big part of it.

The opportunities you have here are a tremendous value and just as great as those you would find anywhere else. To be completely honest, it has been better than I ever expected. I have become more confident in myself and am continuing my education at the University of Maryland on a full tuition scholarship."
