Working at Buckley Education allowed me to feel confident and comfortable before, during, and after my college application process. Mrs. Lisa Kraft was always readily available to help me and remained patient and positive with all of the questions and concerns I had, whethere they concerned my writing, school choices, or technical information.

This story is a few years old, but I share it as often as I can. It's a reflection of what can be and what will be if hard work, determination, authentic character development is demonstrated. John attended his first choice place of higher education and after two years took time off to work for a non-profit organization; a testament to his desire to affect change. He is back at the university, completing his undergraduate degree and the world is full of possibilities for him. I'm curious to hear of his new adventures in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
