EMILY’S STORIES


"It helped me build my confidence; I know how to conduct myself professionally."

For Jay Wrathrall, coming back to school after 20 years was a daunting decision. “I was really anxious about going back to school at 40 years old.” But he decided to enroll in the GIS program after encouragement from friends and realizing that without additional education, he would continue to hit a wall in whatever industry he worked in. 

As a single parent to a 12-year-old son, he needed a program that could fit into his schedule and he didn’t have a lot of money to spend. It became clear very quickly that Emily Griffith was the right choice for him. “I get extra value for my money,” he says. 

Now Jay is almost finished with the program and says he has gained a lot of skills that will be useful in whatever career he decides to go into. “It helped me build my confidence; I know how to conduct myself professionally,” he says. “I feel like I’m in a pretty good place.” He gives a lot of the credit to his instructors, Jen Lillis and Donnie Kirk, who he says really made themselves available and gave him the support he needed to succeed!
