Combelina Lewis is now a Registered Nurse, able to support herself and two children. This has not always been the case. When Combelina first came into our office she was a single mom with only a dream-a dream of becoming a Nurse. She realized this would be a long and difficult road but was ready for the challenge. Her first step was going to the Middle Georgia Consortium. She sat down with a Career Facilitator and they discussed her Career plans and worked out a budget. With the Middle Georgia Consortium paying for her tuition, books and supplies and her strong desire to become a Nurse, she overcame many obstacles and is now self-sufficient, no longer depending on governmental assistance. She received a Degree in Nursing from Macon State College, passed the State Board for her license and is employed at Houston Medical Center. “This was made possible by people caring enough to give her a 2nd chance” along with her determination.
