"The education I received helped me to show my abilities and gave me a new sense of pride and accomplishment."
After six years of active duty with the U.S. Army, including two tours in Iraq, Wesley Seawell was ready to go to college. The Goldston resident decided to enroll at Central Carolina Community College, earn an Associate in Arts-University Transfer, and continue his education at a university.
"The military helped instill in me a sense of discipline and good study habits, setting me up for success," Wesley said. "The leadership and communication skills I learned in the Army were sharpened by my time as a Student Ambassador for the college."
Wesley graduated from Central Carolina Community College in May 2009. He attended Campbell University on a Presidential Scholarship and received his bachelor's degree in political science in 2011. Now he is actively pursuing his interests in politics and the political process.
"I really liked what I saw at Central Carolina, and I wasn't disappointed - great education, great staff, great facilities," Wesley said. "The education I received helped me to show my abilities and gave me a new sense of pride and accomplishment. I am well on my way to accomplishing my dreams."
