Carrie Houston Overcomes Obstacles to Thrive

We are proud of one of our Business Administrative Services students, Carrie Houston, who's from Leamington, Utah, for all she's overcome to succeed in her program.

After a rough childhood dealing with family deaths, bullying and anxiety, the traditional college environment and working in retail made Carrie feel even more stressed out. Then her aunt who lived in Davis County told Carrie's mom about Davis Tech, and Carrie decided to move in with her aunt and uncle and enroll. Although she misses the country life, Carrie has thrived here.

"This is a much better learning environment for me," Carrie says. "It's more focused and I can talk to my teachers one-on-one whenever I need to."

Carrie is excelling at Davis Tech with a 134% progress rate and several Microsoft certifications. She also found a job she loves working as an office assistant at Premier Remodeling. Congratulations, Carrie!
