Stacey Flowers - A College of Saint Mary Success Story

At the young age of 17, Stacey became a mom and thought her only option was to drop out of high school - that is, until she learned about the Mothers Living & Learning program at College of Saint Mary. Because of this program, and because of the college's openness to helping all women get a quality education, she went on to graduate high school and get her college degree. Today, she is a strong, proud and confident woman, encouraging her son, family and others to look to College of Saint Mary for guidance. Stacey is a true testament to what the college can and will do for every woman - no matter what.


The program has gained national attention through a story in the Omaha World-Herald that was picked up by more than 50 media outlets across the U.S. including the San Francisco Chronicle, Washington Times, USA Today and Florida Today.  Read the full story here.
