UPDATE-Continuing Education-It’s All in the Family-Yankton Paper

Three Globe University-Sioux Falls ladies are making the regional headlines. The Centerville family is featured in the Yankton Daily Press and Dakotan. Click here to read newspaper article.

It’s the first day of class for the Early Fall Quarter at Globe University in Sioux Falls. It’s also the first day of class for three Centerville, South Dakota women with quite a connection.

Call it a trickle down effect.  The bug to go back to school started with Lucinda Johnson. She decided to check out the programs at Globe University and chose criminal justice. She started talking to her neighbor–who also happens to be her sister–Sherry Chambers. She was also interested in changing her career path.

“I toured it (the campus) and liked it,” said Sherry. “I like that it’s hands-on and friendlier than the other colleges.”

Sherry decided to enroll at Globe in medical assisting. But the education bug didn’t stop there. Sherry started talking about the decision to return to school to her step-daughter, Michelle Chambers.

“I already know two people going, and we could car pool!” said Michelle Chambers.

Michelle joined in on the family education plan and enrolled in the medical assisting program like her step-mother. Now, the three jump into one car to make the daily 42 mile trek to Sioux Falls. All three ladies agree going as a family will help with the transition back into school.

“It’s exciting,” said Michelle Chambers.

For these ladies, continuing education is all in the family-good luck, gals!
