Getting the Gift of Education

November is often a time when people share stories of gratitude and we think that’s great! For the next month the P.S. Blog will feature several Pearson Campus Ambassadors who are grateful for a variety of things: from family and friends to opportunities at their college. What are you grateful for?

Her favorite class right now is Supply Chain Management. For Thanksgiving, Meredith prefers the leftovers and says her favorite food is a leftover Thanksgiving sandwich with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Here is what she’s grateful for:

I am so unbelievably thankful for my parents and my education. My parents have spent the last twenty years of their lives supporting me to chase any goal I set my sights on, and the biggest gift they have ever given me to do this is my education. They have constantly provided me with everything I could possibly need to succeed at school without having any other worries distracting me from excelling. This is the biggest opportunity I could ever ask for as I am given the luxury to focus solely on my future, and I could not be more grateful for the generosity and support from my parents that has allowed me to succeed.
