Alyssa Lasley

alyssa-lasleyAlyssa Lasley, of Clintwood, is a home school student who was unable to complete requirements for her high school diploma due to family and personal health challenges.  She persevered to obtain her General Equivalency Diploma (GED) in 2012, and began taking art classes at MECC soon after.  The availability of financial aid and bus transportation to and from campus were determining factors in her choice to attend MECC.  Consultation with one of the college’s Success Coaches helped Lasley to focus on her career goals and major in Business Management.  She was a 2015-16 recipient of the Jo Pierson Horne and Rufus Horne Memorial Scholarship.  She hopes to earn her Associate’s Degree in May 2017, and eventually open her own cyber café and bakery.
