“It doesn’t matter what age you come back to school,” Pam Justice explains. “You can be successful. And starting at the community college was the best experience for me.”

Pam Justice, assistant principal at Tuscola High School, loves interacting with the school’s students. She knew she could make a difference in these students.

Through her job, she is able to build confidence in high school students. “When I decided to go back to school, I did not have a lot of confidence. But the smaller classes at HCC and the support the instructors gave me helped build my confidence. It was the ideal place to get started,” Pam explains.

After leaving HCC, she pursued a bachelor’s degree in business. Next, she received a master’s in education, then an advanced degree in education specialist. Most recently, Pam received a doctorate in education leadership.

“At HCC, I developed a sense of security. When I got to Western (Carolina University), there’s no doubt about it, I was prepared,” she explains.

“It doesn’t matter what age you come back to school,” she explains. “You can be successful. And starting at the community college was the best experience for me.”
