Amy Dickerson

Amy worked nearly full time for five years to put herself through school.

The work and time have been worth the effort, said the 2008 Paradise High School graduate who received her associate’s degree in Social and Behavioral Science.

“I am super excited because I’ve been accepted into Texas A&M as an animal science major,” said Dickerson.

“The staff has been wonderful, the atmosphere friendly, and the campus is beautiful. Butte’s been a great place for me to explore educational paths and gain access to the resources that have been crucial to being successful in school,” said Dickerson.
