As a restaurant franchise owner, the SPS program has allowed me to learn and grow as a business owner. The SPS program showed me that college can be for anyone. Prior to enrolling at Vanguard, college overwhelmed me, so I took time off from school. Vanguard has reshaped what college means  for me and because of that I have created a new legacy for my family name by becoming the first member of my family to complete my degree.
