Stories and Testimonials
The mentoring of an older sister, and the desire to be a role model to a younger sibling helped inspire Brittany Esposito to attend Western Nevada College. Esposito, who is pursuing an Associate of Arts degree at the Fallon Campus, enrolled at WNC after encouragement from sister Nicole.
"She graduated from WNC with her AA almost two years ago and encouraged me to take courses," Esposito said. "I chose WNC because it was convenient, close to home, and staff and instructors were friendly and willing to answer my initial questions."
Esposito said she feels a responsibility to complete her degree. "I come from a large family," said Esposito, who graduated from Churchill County High School in 2006. "I want to show my little sisters that with a little hard work and effort, anyone can successfully graduate college. I want to prove to my friends and family that even though we weren't rich growing up, it is possible to make something of myself," Esposito said.
In addition to working toward her AA degree, Esposito is serving as a support specialist on the Fallon campus. "I do any task that is required as a secretary," she said. "I love helping students follow through with the necessary steps to begin college."
Her own college progression also is gratifying. "The knowledge I have gained has been the most uplifting aspect of attending college," she said. "I know I am learning to help myself succeed in the future."
Esposito is undecided on a field of study but several careers intrigue her. "Teaching young children, criminal justice work and business ventures are all interests."
