A Jackson High graduate, Mya Riske-Moore knew she wanted to go to college, but she didn’t want to have to go too far from home. Jackson College was the right choice.
With the help of scholarships, her college experience can be even better. She received the Jackson Area Dentist Scholarship and the Yeakey Scholarship.
“I chose Jackson College to be able to afford school and still stay at home. I did the dental assisting program at the Career Center, so I’m hoping to go into dental hygiene,” she said. “The scholarship makes it so I can focus more on school vs. having to work more and harder to be able to afford school, which is always helpful.”
Riske-Moore will apply to the next dental hygiene class. So far, she’s enjoying it all!
