Shadé Beck ’21

Support: Student Emergency Needs

Shadé, an Army veteran and single mother of three, earned an associate’s degree in human services. During the pandemic, while balancing work, school, and caring for her children, she had to drop out of a class. She still owed a balance for that course which was the final class needed to graduate. One of her professors learned about her hardship so she reached out to the Foundation for support.
“Greenville Tech gave me the blocks I needed in order to build where I wanted to go. Because of your generosity, I was able to continue my education and make a better life for myself and my kids. Thanks to donor support, my balance was paid and I was able to graduate.” Shadé plans to spend her career in bereavement counseling for veterans.
