Red Bluff resident Jessica Evans-Field returned to college in her early 40s, earning a B.A. in organizational leadership online through Simpson University’s ASPIRE program.
Returning to school was not on Cassandra Telles’s radar as she raised two children on her own and worked full time. But when a friend told her about the ASPIRE degree-completion program at Simpson University, she decided to give it a try.
Weed resident Eva Escatel-Pimentel knew she needed to complete her bachelor’s degree in order to be more competitive in the job market. Simpson University’s School of Adult Studies ASPIRE program offered her a way to accomplish that goal in just a year.
Simpson University welcomed about 75 adult graduates of its ASPIRE program to a special luncheon March 22 that featured alumna Jenny Davidson, one of the British Broadcasting Corporation’s Top 100 Most Influential and Inspiring Women of 2018.
Fourteen North State residents graduated with honors in January from Simpson University’s School of Adult Studies.
These students qualified for Alpha Sigma Lambda, a national honor society for continuing education students who are in the top 20 percent of their class and who demonstrate superior scholarship and leadership abilities.
Simpson University alumna Jenny Davidson has been named one of the 100 most “inspiring and influential women from around the world for 2018” by the BBC.
Working full time with three children who are active in sports, Tina Schoffstoll knew it would be a challenge to earn her college degree.
