Emalee Morgan, upcoming Summer 2020 graduate, is completing her Associate in Arts degree and plans to pursue a certificate in NFC’s Medical Biller/ Coder Program in the Fall 2020 semester. Myeshia and Emalee returned to NFC in the Spring of 2020 as part of the NFC Last Mile Program. The Last Mile Program assists students who are 12 credit hours or less from completing their degree and have been unenrolled for at least one semester. The initiative encourages students to complete their remaining credits, receive their diploma, and finish their “last mile” at NFC. “Thank you all so much,” said Myeshia. “If it had not been for you [NFC scholarship donors], I probably would not have come back to school.” Myeshia and Emalee visited the NFC Foundation office to celebrate their accomplishments with NFC Foundation staff and Kimberly Myeshia Tucker, Last Mile Scholar “ Thank you all so much. If it had not been for you [scholarship donors], I probably “would not have come back to school. Congrats! You did it. 24 NORTH FLORIDA COLLEGE
