Kylie Marks is a UB graduate of Philip Barbour High School. She is currently attending Alderson Broaddus University. Her advice to current students is: "Don't freak out if your college experience doesn't go as planned. It's ok to switch majors. It's ok to transfer schools. Do whatever you feel is best for your future. I went from a nursing major at one state college to an elementary education major at another one and it was the best decision I've ever made!"

Talladaga Pennington is a 2017 graduate of Elkins High School and the D&E UB Program. Tally attended Davis & Elkins College where she completed her RN and BSN degrees.

Shania Keene is a graduate of D&E UB and Philip Barbour High School. She is attending West Liberty University and has a lot of valuable advice for current high school students:
"Take advantage of each opportunity UB offers. Going on campus tours expanded my college choices and ultimately, lead me to choosing West Liberty University. Participating in the summer programs will really help to prepare you for college. Also, if you don’t have the PROMISE Scholarship yet, don’t give up because that award will help you a lot financially. Once you get to college, don’t be scared to change your major! I was set on becoming a zoologist, but after taking some classes, I realized it wasn’t the career path for me and changed my major from Zoo Science to Exercise Physiology. The career choice you choose is going to be something you do for the rest of your life, so choose something that is going to make you happy. Finally, some words of encouragement - never give up on your dream. No matter the battles you may go through to achieve that dream, it will all be worth it once you have achieved that dream!"

Thank you for checking in, Shania!
