Rebecca Cope

Nineteen year-old Rebecca Cope wants to do her part to have a positive impact on our environment. Therefore, she has chosen to earn a degree in alternative energy.  Her educational journey is beginning with an associate degree  at West Kentucky Community and Technical College, and she plans to transfer to a four-year university to earn her bachelor’s degree. “I want to better myself, so higher education has always been a goal for me.”

Rebecca said that WKCTC is a wonderful place to ease into the college process; she is so glad she chose to come WKCTC before going to a four-year university first. “I would have drowned at a university without people to go to for help. I can’t imagine a place more centered around student self-success and encouragement than WKCTC.”

In her first semester at WKCTC in fall 2012, Rebecca was part of TRIO Student Support Services and said the program helped her balance both her college schedule and home life. “They offer such great services like tutoring, computer use, advising and mentoring. It’s an awesome program.”

As a Student Ambassador, Rebecca is meeting more people, helping out in the community and giving herself real world experience. She believes WKCTC has made her more confident, happy to help and ready to be involved in the community. “Being a Student Ambassador won’t only improve my college experience, but it will MAKE my college experience.  My ambassadorship is the first time I have been involved in my college and I am thrilled!”
