CLEVELAND, Tenn. – When Kimberly “Kimmie” Galloway was choosing a college, she had three main things she was looking for. She needed a college close to home because she was taking care of her sick mother at the time. She wanted to attend a community college because of the Tennessee Promise, and she needed a flexible schedule where she would not have to go to school every day. At CSCC, she found all of these things. She was able to remain close to her hometown of Copper Basin. She was also able to take advantage of Tennessee Promise, as well as flexible scheduling options.

“My parents would have had a cow if I missed out on two years of free college,” stated Galloway. “I will be in less debt getting my bachelor’s degree than those who chose not to come to CSCC and take advantage of this great opportunity.”

Throughout her time at CSCC, Galloway has been involved with the CSCC Ambassadors assisting with many recruitment events, as well as the Student Senate. “I really enjoy going to the high schools and talking to high school students about CSCC and telling them what I enjoy about CSCC.”

Galloway said she loves the one on one attention she gets from her instructors at CSCC. “All of my instructors are incredibly helpful,” stated Galloway. “My favorite instructors are Mrs. Moseley and Mr. Wilson. I like the way they teach. They have flipped classrooms where you do the reading before you come into class, and then they give the class a chance to express their opinions on different topics.”

Galloway plans to follow in many of her family’s footsteps and become a teacher. Her grandmother, aunts, sister and brother were all teachers, as well as her mother who went on to become a vice principal. After CSCC, Galloway plans to transfer to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga to continue the family tradition and major in education.

“I think community college is a great stepping stone for higher education, especially if you come from a small high school. I believe CSCC helps students learn life skills for a better future, and I would recommend it to everyone.”
