Meet Business Alumni Amy Jackson

Jan 5th, 2012 | By | Category: ALUMNI

Amy Jackson (class of 2011)

After I graduated high school, my mom always said to me that she didn’t think I was going to college.  Not for a lack of encouragement, quite the opposite actually.  She encouraged me to follow my dreams and do whatever I wanted.  For many years I wanted to pursue becoming a professional wrestler.

Once I graduated high school, my opportunity was there and I took it. Being a professional wrestler was an amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. However, after five years of the very real falls and injuries, I was done.  I didn’t want to be 30 years old and feel 75.  Thank goodness while pursuing my dreams I continued to attend community college to get my general education credits out of the way.  That paved the way for me to find Lewis University’s accelerated adult program. This kind of program was right up my alley and the best thing that had ever happened to me. The program fits perfectly into my busy and hectic schedule.  Now, having just graduated in December 2011, I’m moving on with the Fast Track MBA program.

Lewis has opened so many doors for me and I can’t express my gratitude to them for creating a program for working adults that works so perfectly.  It’s been an amazing journey. amyrjackson@lewisu.edu
