50 Faces of Gratitude: Lydia Burroughs

by Lydia Burroughs – Alum, class of 2012

I am grateful to Chattanooga State for affording me the opportunity of launching my educational adventure towards becoming a CPA. Due to the wonderfully flexible format and educators that cared about my learning, I am a proud alumni with an AS degree from Chattanooga State, and I am now in the latter stages of my education. Furthermore, I am always touting to anyone thinking of attending college how much they would benefit by beginning their education at Chattanooga State, because I never felt like I was left behind and there was always someone I could go to if I needed further understanding on any subject. I also came away with professors that became lifelong friends that care about my successes!!!

Chattanooga State was like a second family to me during my two years as a student and forty-four years as an employee. While a student, faculty and fellow students became friends and supporters and we received an education and graduated with degrees that gave us careers. During my years as an employee, I got married; had children; had grandchildren; and lost parents. My fellow employees were there with friendship and support for these life events as well as for day-to-day work responsibilities. Chattanooga State was a great place to be a student and employee and still is with all the caring faculty and staff that are there to support and assist all along the way. Miss my Chattanooga State family.

I am grateful to Chattanooga State, because they gave me the courage and support to graduate high school with my associate degree. Now in my fourth year as a faculty member I have the greatest opportunity to give back the same encouragement that helped me to succeed so many years ago.

I am grateful for Chattanooga State because during my time there, I was openly encouraged to learn who I was at the core.

I met many great people, had fantastic instructors and learned a lot about a variety of subjects, but the true value of my education was my journey of self-discovery. After changing my major
