Douglas Richburg, GED, Associate Degree Student
Douglas Richburg never thought that he would go to college. In fact, he was discouraged from even trying. “I never had a strong support system and people in other educational settings told me that I would never amount to anything in life,” he recalls. “One person in a high position, someone that I would expect to get support from, even told other educators to let me leave the school system because I would never be anybody anyway.” Yet now Douglas is a student in Forsyth Tech’s Business Administration curriculum program, and is on track to receive his associate degree in spring 2017.
