Linda Johnson: Patrick Brett Scholar at SPC

[Music] Today is a big day for me, I’m so happy. I am feeling empowered, I am honored, I am excited to getting in my degree today, and I’m excited to see where this will take me. “College of Business, Linda Johnson.” The Patrick Brett Foundation has been in existence for three years, and they have provided a hundred and twenty eight thousand dollars for our students to succeed, and Linda is the first graduate and we’re so excited for her, and so proud of her we know that this has been a game changer. [Music] I went back to school for several reasons one, is because of my daughter. I wanted to make sure that she understood that I couldn’t expect her to go back to college if I wasn’t willing to do the same thing. Another thing was because of my career I wanted to make sure that I had something that allowed me to be just as competitive as people who are younger than me and I wanted to have that degree to help me ensure that my future is stable, and I can move forward. This scholarship is for folks who are trying to change their lives people who are re-careering themselves and starting anew. It is really helping families get a new start. I work at Raymond James financial in the information technology department they have already seen a change in me so this will help me advance in my career and I’m a lot stronger I’m confident and people see that. I’m very thankful for St. Petersburg College for giving me the knowledge that I needed in order to move into the next part of my journey. When I first started this, I was a wife, a mother, and a student, and now I am a wife, a mother, and a graduate. I am very thankful that the Patrick Brett Foundation has given me the opportunity for a fresh start. [Music]
