"At Mercer, I got the opportunity to learn by actually doing."
"I'm a kid from Trenton, New Jersey. My high school teachers never pegged me to have a doctorate, or a law degree, or to even finish college, and I wouldn't blame them," Sondej said. "I came to Mercer and they didn't see me that way. They saw me as a college student and welcomed me."
As the mother of three sons, Latasha White of Trenton is considered a non-traditional student. White has not only proven that success can come at any age, but that adults are often guided by strong convictions and a sense of purpose that fuel that success.
More than 1,000 students are expected to graduate from Mercer County Community College (MCCC) on May 17. Each has a unique story, one that often includes challenges that make graduation day particiularly sweet for them and their families. Some grads will head directly to the workforce, while others will transfer for their bachelor's degrees to schools in New Jersey and beyond.
