"Education is always important."
I’m Rebecca Vinyard — a military wife, a mother, and now thanks to my degree from WGU Indiana, I have fulfilled a lifelong dream of being a teacher.
I’ve had that goal since I was seven years old, but knew that going back to college would be tough because of our military lifestyle, and wanting to spend as much time with my family as I could. When I enrolled, WGU Indiana was the only online university whose accreditation the state of Indiana would accept for teaching. I moved twice during my studies at WGU Indiana, and I had the flexibility and support to continue through the transitions. I would tell anyone considering WGU Indiana that it is going to be one of the best decisions they make in their college career. WGU Indiana student mentors offer ongoing encouragement, and the course mentors are insightful, available and willing to help you through any task at hand. WGU Indiana isn't just about the education, it's about the people too.
Earning a degree has been huge for our family. Not only was I able to secure a job immediately upon graduation, I also showed my children how much of an impact a solid education can make. I wanted my children to see that no matter what life brings you or where life takes you, an education is always important, and it can be done with determination and passion.
