“These challenges have given me the confidence I need to pursue any goal I make for myself. Nobody is going to do it for you. You've got to take charge and get it done!”

Julianne Murrah is not only an NCTC Alumna, but she also works on the NCTC Graham campus as a Technical Specialist.

Her favorite thing about NCTC is the camaraderie between students, faculty and staff. A highlight was when she graduated from NCTC in 2019 and got to see the many people that she works with congratulating her as she made her way to the stage.

Julianne wants students to know “that we care for our students and want them to succeed at NCTC.”

While taking classes at NCTC, Julianne was pregnant, working full-time, and tending to her household as a wife, daughter, sister, and aunt.

“There were some semesters where I could only take one course, but I got it done,” said Julianne. “These challenges have given me the confidence I need to pursue any goal I make for myself. Nobody is going to do it for you. You've got to take charge and get it done.”

Her advice to other students is to “keep taking courses until you finish. Even if it's just one course a semester, stick to it. It's better to slowly achieve a goal than to not achieve it at all.”
