With a successful 2014 Commencement Ceremony behind us, recent High Point University graduates are preparing to commence prestigious career paths around the world at Fortune 500 companies, international service programs, public school systems, top-tier law, medical and graduate school programs, and many other esteemed organizations thanks to their journey at HPU. Here’s a glimpse of one extraordinary senior from the Class of 2014:

Name: Carina Kelly

Major: Kelly graduated with an Masters of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education on May 3.

Post-graduation plans: Kelly will continue to work as a second grade teacher at Cone Elementary School in Greensboro, N.C.

How HPU helped you get there: “Enrolling into the MAT program at HPU was what helped me pursue my mid-life career change to teaching.”

Most impactful professor at HPU: “Dr. Debbie Linville was my most impactful professor at HPU.”

Most impactful moment at HPU: “When we were faced with the challenge of taking on more than your average 6-9 credit per semester course load in order to meet the demands of the state requirement for Masters Degree pay increase for teachers.  I received nothing but the utmost encouragement and support from each and every professor I had during that year. Faced with this challenge and working full time created one of the hardest but most challenging years of my life.”
