Dawnrisha Talbott, 20, transferred to Maysville Community and Technical College/Licking Valley Campus last August.
“I wanted to be closer to home and I still wanted to get a degree,” Talbott said.
A 2008 Harrison County High School graduate, Talbott is currently majoring in elementary education.
She wants to teach second grade.
“Hopefully I can be a teacher in the Harrison County school district,” Talbott said.
Her experience at her hometown community college, she said, has been wonderful.
