Student helps others succeed
Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013 — The transition between a community college and higher education should not block students from reaching their dreams, according to a past Susanville student.
Kate Johnston, a former Lassen Community College student, made the leap from the local institution to the University of California, Los Angeles, and she credits the ease of her shift to a support group of students that talked her through the move. Now, she wants to do the same for others.
“I want to empower them,” said Johnston. “I want every student to be able to reach their dreams.”
