Blood Donation Will Cost You Nothing But It Will Save A Life!"


   Janine’s Story by Tara Teeling

From the first day Janine started at Academy of Learning Career College, she was steadfastly focused on her goals for the future.  Already a seasoned retail manager, she made the decision to continue her education so that she would be able to find a new career, one which would allow her a quality of life she had been yearning for. Certainly, there were hurdles to consider, and Janine thought she had considered them all, developing thoughtful strategies and committing to them without wavering.  She planned for everything, but plans don't always go the way you think they will, no matter how much preparation goes into them.
