After graduating from Clover Hill High School in 1990, Cedric chose a different path than a college or university for his future. He left Chesterfield, Virginia to serve our country in the U.S. Army. For 24 years, Cedric was Active Duty Army, meaning he was a full time soldier. His military career included four tours in Iraq, one tour in Haiti and one tour in Kosovo. Despite earning a Bronze Star, two Meritorious Service Medals, nine Army Commendation Medals and two Army Achievement Medals, Cedric still wanted to achieve more. He had a personal goal of furthering his education, and he selected Strayer University to help him with his quest. Cedric saw Strayer as an investment in his future. He found the Strayer promise of a personal educational experience appealing, and chose to attend nighttime classes at a campus close to his home. Quickly, Cedric found a peer network of other professionals with like experience that were in his age group. In regards to staff, he felt that they “really care about students. Professors are very professional and were devoted to my success.” Cedric’s hard work and determination paid off. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor’s of Business Administration. However, Cedric wasn’t done yet. He still had one more personal goal: earning his Master of Science. Cedric is currently working on his master’s degree and has high praise for Strayer to share with others who are thinking about going back to school as adults to get their degrees. At Strayer, Cedric found support among the faculty and staff, and his peers. Flexible class times and online learning helped him fit school into his busy schedule. Whenever he needed guidance or simply a sounding board, all he had to do was ask. “I would highly recommend Strayer as an educational choice,” he says. As for us at Strayer, we’re happy to be helping such a great student and wonderful person.
