Samantha Sweatt


Determination and diligence contributed extensively to 23-year-old Samantha Sweatt's graduation from LCCC with an associate of arts degree. Having been homeschooled from seventh grade onwards, it was difficult for her to adapt to being in a classroom atmosphere, but she knew she had more crucial things to worry about - like her future and career.

"I wanted to better my GPA and finish all of my general education courses before continuing on to The University of Akron so I could solely focus on my artwork and developing a promising portfolio,” Sweatt said.

"It took me about three years to complete my associate degree, but that is because I switched my major after the first year," Sweatt said. Family, friends and good old determination kept Sweatt motivated to pursue her studies, "I have always wanted to be the best I can, especially for my mother who has been my pillar of support."

"As a child I was always academically inclined. I was in GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) through elementary school. It wasn’t until homeschooling did I go through my slacking stages here and there with the amount of leniency that was possible with being homeschooled. After my first two semesters at LCCC, I was further developed into a hard-working student," Sweatt asserts.

 "I have met some of the greatest professors, instructors, and people anyone could ever hope to meet. Some of my best friends I met in my classes that I believe I will never lose," Sweatt said.

Sweatt has transferred to The University of Akron to pursue a bachelor of fine arts with a graphic design emphasis.
