Lou - NIC AlumLou, an NIC alum, was a non-traditional student looking to change careers. She started the ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY program while still maintaining a rigorous work schedule. She was able to succeed in the program through hard work and the support of two NIC instructors —Tacey Keylon and Damian Caires — who empowered and encouraged her.

Lou says she is fully prepared for most any job and credits this to the wide variety of courses required for the program.

"The environment at NIC was amazing. I still attribute most of my success to the things I learned in class, and fall back on many of my lessons when struggling."

Dual credit students can take these credits starting in 9th-grade and online classes are available through NIC starting in 11th-grade if the classes don't fit into high school schedules.
