Rebecca Depinet will soon graduate from Lorain County Community College with the dream to work at Walt Disney World Resort’s Animal Kingdom. The 20-year-old will complete her associate of science and associate of arts with career goals to become a zookeeper.“I attended LCCC because of its affordable rate and close proximity to my home in Norwalk,” Depinet said. “I can save money by attending LCCC for two years and then UT for the remaining two years.” Depeinet is proud because she worked hard to complete her assignments and do well in classes, she said. “I have gained confidence in my abilities in science and math.”
After graduation, Depinet plans to attend The University of Toledo in the fall to earn a bachelor’s degree in biology. She said she would like to volunteer or work at a zoo.
She would like to thank her professors, especially Kathy Durham and Ruby Beil, who have been supportive and encouraging. She also thanks her family for their support and encouragement.
