She persevered and found the advisors very helpful in setting the stage for the first steps of her education experience. Kelly has become involved in the Student Government Association, Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society, Student Ambassador Association, and the Quality Enhancement Program. Organizations such as these provide Kentucky Community and Technical College students with leadership skills that will enhance opportunities in their future careers.

Joyce Kelly acknowledges MCTC as a major aspect of her life and her future. She stated, MCTC has always offered me great opportunities to pursue my education through challenging courses. MCTC will always be special to me because without the opportunities I have received here, I would not be able to continue my path and education.
