  • Graduate Success Stories
    Director STEP Inc My time at Ferrum College 1990 1994 helped me grow and develop in so many ways The professors challenged me academically and they expected me to be successful For the first time in my life I was excited about learning and that excitement is still with me today I love reading and learning about so many different things Ferrum did that for me I m currently pursuing my Masters Degree and Ferrum prepared me very well My Ferrum experience helped me create some amazing relationships I often run into professors that I haven t seen in 10 years and they still know my name My former classmates will always have a special place in my heart The staff at Ferrum became my second family Everyone from financial aid to the bookstore to the cafeteria genuinely cared about me and the other students How amazing is that The entire community not just professors encouraged our development and they were willing to help us in any way The impact Ferrum has made on my life is immeasurable Because Ferrum is smaller I was able to interact with other students and professors easier than some of my friends who went to larger schools I had to be proactive learn to work in groups and be ready to get involved in any task when I was invited This has helped me tremendously as an Executive Director of a non profit agency Ferrum laid the foundation by challenging me as a student teaching me leadership skills and giving me confidence in my abilities I often meet young people who lack confidence in themselves and some students who think they don t belong in college I always recommend Ferrum or other small private colleges for them to consider Private colleges specialize in giving those students the tools they need to thrive the education to prepare them for life after college and the support to help them grow into a confident young adult Katie Ingram 07 Account Coordinator Neathawk Dubuque Packett Katie was a Business Administration major with an emphasis in Management and Marketing She was the president of the Students In Free Enterprise organization and on the SIFE Speaking Team for all four years Katie was an Admissions Ambassador and a member of the Lambda Sigma Honor Society among other college responsibilities Bryce Burnett 06 Corporate Sales Representative for the North Carolina Division of Gold Kist Inc As a high school student Bryce Burnett had the opportunity to play football at the Division I level and was offered scholarships to the University of Connecticut Louisville Florida State and Vanderbilt In the end Burnett chose the stability of what Ferrum s strong Agriculture program could offer over a gamble at a career in football After graduation and one year working as the Quality Assurance Supervisor Bryce was promoted to the corporate offices in Atlanta GA as a Corporate Sales Representative for the North Carolina Division Sylvio Brutus 02 Athletic Director Randolph Macon Academy Front
