On her experience as a Southside student, Jordan says,"SVCC provided me with the first steps in reaching my dream of becoming a Meteorologist. Without the Dual-Enrollment classes and all of the helpful and encouraging staff at the college, I wouldn't have been able graduate high school with my Associate Degree, and then graduate from Virginia Tech early and ultimately receive a position with my dream job at the age of 21. The motto 'Success Starts Here' certainly proved to be true in my case! Thanks to everyone at SVCC for helping begin my success story!"
