Jefferson Community College President Ty A. Stone is all too familiar with being a nontraditional student.
“I was a nontraditional student in every sense of the word,” Ms. Stone said in a Watertown Daily Times editorial board meeting Thursday. “It took me 20 years to get my first degree. I went to five institutions — 20 years. I knew that there was something I wanted to do. I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I didn’t find out what I wanted to be until about five years ago. But I knew that education was a part of it.”
