Class of 1980
After several years of working in various jobs, Sandi decided she really wanted to go to college and become a teacher. After completing a bachelor's degree, then a Master's degree, Sandi also completed a doctorate in Education from Florida State University and specialized in internationalizing higher education. The only member of her family to complete a college degree, Sandi is very proud to encourage young people to ignore the perceived obstacles to attending college and don't be afraid to ask for help from people who can advise you about college.
