James LocklearI don’t know what I would have done without the help of the BOOST staff. I had been out of school for almost 20 years and my BOOST family gave me the assurance that I could fight all the battles that lay before me. Not only are they counselors and advisors, they are also compassionate professionals.  BOOST helped you me be more a successful student by first helping me to re-learn how to study for the Respiratory Therapy program. Then I had to learn how to memorize.  And last, I had to apply it. BOOST helped me to have confidence in myself to do all this, and then showed me how to use these very important tools.

Janine Breeden-WilsonI am a Nurse hopeful.  I joined the BOOST program when I began school in 2015.  The BOOST program has helped guide me in the direction that I need to go stay on the right track on this adventure.  This program has made a difference in my journey.  I am looking forward to making a difference in the lives of the people that I encounter along the way. BOOST has helped me to be a more successful student by helping me with study groups and attending Cube with fellow students, and BOOST instructors have also helped tremendously. 

Meka JacobsMy name is Meka Jacobs, a BOOST student at Robeson Community College. I have recently completed a certification in EKG Technician and have thought about going back to school for Radiography. BOOST is such a great program to get into once you enroll at RCC. In my own words, BOOST is a program for health care students to be involved in. Also, they give you an opportunity to enroll in a curriculum that will  prepare you for your career very well. I have received support from everyone working with BOOST. From Mrs. Branch, she has professionally enrolled me in the classes I needed in which I have made a great friendship with BOOST members.

Jessica CooperTo me, BOOST is more than just a program. I should say it’s My Balanced Optimistic Openhearted Support Team. If I needed support, I got it! If I needed a better understanding of what I needed to do to better my education, I received it. No matter what the situation I encountered, the BOOST Program had my best interests at heart.  Just the fact of having someone in my corner that believed I could succeed, was what I really needed. The BOOST club gave me that extra BOOST of confidence to believe in myself. I became the student that I myself doubted that I could be!  I just want to say that I am thankful for the caring and supportive faculty members of BOOST, especially Mrs. Miller. She stepped in for me when I had no one else. I faced a problem that almost made me give up and she would not let me.

Shaniyere GraingerThe BOOST program is amazing. With the encouraging words from the staff, inspiring attitudes, and helpful tools, I finished my first semester of college with a 4.0 GPA.

BOOST has given me the confidence I need to be a successful student. As my advisor, Ms. Miller guides me on my academic plan to achieve my goal to get into the nursing program and she answers any questions I have.  She always gives me supportive and encouraging comments.

I know with hard work, dedication, and the BOOST team, I will continue to be successful in college.

Marquita Galbreath, BOOST StudentMy name is Marquita Galbreath and I want to be a Licensed Practical Nurse. The meaning of BOOST to me means helping students going into the healthcare field find study strategies. It also helps them to become that A student in their healthcare field and be successful. BOOST has helped me in so many ways, such as taking me from being a D student to an A/B student.  It did this by helping me to find study strategies that were beneficial for me.

When I first came to BOOST, I was stressed and overwhelmed because I had taken in the fact that people said I couldn't do it.
