Chasing the Dream of Higher Education
Just three short years ago education was a dream to Logan McDaniel, one of the 2017 commencement speakers for WGU Nevada.
“In the late 90s, I had begun pursuing a college education shortly after high school, but as we all know, life has a funny way of throwing us curveballs,” he said. Logan battled through a number of obstacles prior to earning his college degree from WGU Nevada. Among these challenges were the death of his young son, a divorce, career changes, and moves to several states. However, he did not stop achieving his dreams. Logan graduation with a B.S. in Business Management and is finishing an MBA in IT Management.
“An online education through Western Governors University isn’t easy. It takes a lot of work. It takes dedication. It takes the ability to focus yourself, manage your time, and kick yourself in the rear when you are losing sight of the light at the end of the tunnel. But there is light at the end of the tunnel, and in my opinion it is one of the most rewarding accomplishments we can challenge ourselves with.”
