Shauna earns her degree and continues to raise her family.
– The biggest challenge of
going back to college is being a mom. Taking care of things at the house, having homework, keeping up
with everything with the kids and running errands and
all the motherly duties. But was it worth it, absolutely. As a nontraditional student my
motto the whole week through was I’m going to be the same
age with or without my degree. I am going to get my degree. The counselors were
fantastic to work with. They helped me pick out the
classes that I needed to do and what steps I needed to take. Anyone that’s thinking about
going to school, do it. Having my degree in the radiology field, I’m a mammographer, so I actually
help detect breast cancer. USU Brigham City has definitely
given me the tools to be successful in my career
and to make a difference in many lives in our community. Take time for school, take
time for an education. It’s definitely gonna
be worth it in the end. My name is Shauna Smoot and I’m an Aggie.
