Sharon Lockwood's Story: City Vision Gave Her More Knowledge and Understanding

Before Sharon Lockwood enrolled at City Vision College, she was working as Director at the Central WY Rescue Mission’s Transformation Center, a center for homeless women and children. What attracted her to City Vision was its faith-based foundation, and that, similar to Sharon, many of the instructors had experience working with the homeless and addicts. She says, “Many of [them] had worked at homeless shelters and understood the dynamics involved with working with this particular population.

Tamiko Cuellar's Story: Business- and Ministry-Minded

Michelle Smith's Story: Internship Has Been 'Amazing'

If there was one thing Michelle Smith really needed, it was more time. Before her internship at City Vision, she worked full-time as a Collections Officer while at the same time raising a son. Her job required her to commute long miles and work late nights and weekends. She said, “It was very difficult for me being a mother, wife, and working full-time with part-time pay, having to commute on a daily basis driving over 50 miles one way to work and back home.”
