Margaret Nelson, a Manning native, has been at Central Carolina Technical College for almost two years. She is a Veteran who served in the Army for nine years. She has been an active member of the Veterans Resource Center since she started attending CCTC. She is currently working toward an Associate Degree in Arts and hopes to continue on in the Surgical Technology Program.
Margaret is heavily involved in the community. She is an active member at Goodwill Baptist Church in Manning and a recreational basketball coach in Clarendon County. On campus, she is involved with the following student life groups: Student Veterans of America, TRIO, ACT and Phi Beta Lamda. This year, she received the “2017 TRIO College Student of the Year Award.”
One of Margaret Nelson’s greatest accomplishments is not letting her past define her. She is an encouraging role model for her daughter who is also enrolled at CCTC. Margaret has great plans for her future and her time here at CCTC has started her off on the right path.
