Marilyn Bowers, Harrisburg, Pa., Corporate Communication

The program served a huge need. I knew I couldn't move forward in my career without higher education. … If not for E-town's commitment to adult learners I would not have had the opportunity to continue my education nor could I inspire others to continue.
