Kristen McRae, ITA Program


Kristian McRae, a native of Wilcox County, was attending South Georgia Technical  College’s Licensed Practical Nursing Program when enrolled in the WIOA program. She was  recently laid off and having problems finding employment. With the lack of income, the  financial burden of completing the LPN program was overwhelming. Kristian needed WIOA  assistance to help with her tuition, supplies, and the daily transportation stipend to continue  attending school. She graduated from the Nursing program in December 2022 and has since  passed her NCLEX. Kristian was a great participant, and we are very proud of her  accomplishments. 

Kristian shared her experience by saying, “I am so grateful that I was able to receive  WIOA funding. Without WIOA, I am not sure how I would have been able to pay tuition and all  the other costs that are associated with the nursing program.”
