"If I can be someone who perseveres, then I can help the next person persevere."

Shaekwon Heard

Spartanburg Community College

I was born in Anderson. When I was in sixth grade, we moved to Spartanburg – and it was literally the best thing that ever happened to me. I admit I was a little lazy in school and didn't fully apply myself. Despite high test scores, my Anderson teachers and the school district refused to put me in higher-level courses based on my in-class performance. When I got to Spartanburg, however, they looked at my scores and immediately put me in the honors-level classes. When I graduated in 2014, I knew I didn't want to go to college, but I had no plan B. I hadn’t even thought through any options beyond a four-year college.
