“ I chose Willis College to further my education and career. It seemed like a natural choice because my grandmother graduated from Willis many years ago and she’s had a prosperous and challenging career in the same field of interest: office administration. I followed in her footsteps and I haven’t regretted it since! I gained valuable skills and began my new career as an Administrator. Within a short amount of time I was promoted to a managerial position. I decided to send my two daughters to Willis as well after they completed high school, making it now three generations of my family to graduate from Willis College and take on stimulating careers. I highly recommend Willis College! ”
