July is designated National French American Heritage Month in the United States to recognize the important contributions made to the US by Americans of French descent.
In July we recognize the Americans with Disabilities Act. July 26 recognizes the anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which protects people with disabilities from discrimination in the areas of employment, transportation, and public accommodation. Some 19% – or nearly 1 in 5 – of Americans has a disability, according to the US Census Bureau.
My experience at VA Western was excellent. The flexibility of the classes made it possible for me to earn an Associate’s degree over the course of two pregnancies. Additionally, once I finished my degree I was able to seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution where I went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree. My time at VA Western gave me the confidence and education I needed to make that goal possible. I will always think back fondly on those years!
