"The AT degree I received from CSS prepared me for a great career. I began working at the NCAA DII level and now DI. I recently had an opportunity to help at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA with Paralympic throwers. Helping with this elite camp was an inspirational experience. I was excited to assist in any way and got to know the athletes on a more personal level. One of the athletes not only let me hold her Bronze Medal from London, but insisted I wear it.
