Staying in the Race

Nashville State Community College Profiles
Mike Johnson
Psychology A.A.S.
Nashville State Community College has been phenomenal. Not only have I got my education here, but they’ve been there for me through financial situations. They’ve given me scholarships that made this stuff happen. When there were times that I was going to be out of the race, it was Nashville State Community College, and the benefits of being a college student, that kept me in the race. I wouldn’t have made it without them.
