New Career Helps Graduate Stay Young

Mar 30, 2012

The Richmond Campus awarded Linda Combs with the Alumni Hall of Achievement award at the graduation ceremony in May 2012.

Linda was working in a factory for 26 years when it unexpectedly closed and moved its operations to Brazil. After being laid off, she decided to enroll in American National University to improve her office skills. In 2006, she graduated with two diplomas - one in business administration and the other in computerized office applications. Now she is enjoying a fulfilling career as office administrator and right-hand woman to the CEO of Greenhouse Technology, Inc.

Her supervisor, Mr. Winterbottom, said that he found the perfect fit for his company in Linda and that he appreciates her strong work ethic. “She keeps all the paperwork flowing through the company correctly but her willingness to do whatever other jobs that are necessary for the company, beyond that, is what really makes it important for us,” explained Mr. Winterbottom.

Linda feels that her new career keeps her young. “It keeps your mind going all the time. Until I look in the mirror, I really don’t feel like I’m going to be 63,” she said.
