Miranda “Randi” Challey is passionate about helping others. She has been working for the past ten years to improve the lives of people with disabilities. Through hard work and perseverance, Challey has taken classes at YVC, on-and-off, while working multiple jobs. “Knowing that I could make a difference in someone’s life is what motivates me to continue working two jobs to pay for tuition and complete my education in order to do my job even better. It allows me to better serve my clients,” stated Challey. She works as a placement specialist assisting with job search and development of skills. In addition, she works at a local treatment center for women with children and assists them during their recovery. As a part-time student, Challey has maintained her GPA and earned a place on the President’s List. She is also a member of YVC’s Phi Theta Kappa. This summer she will graduate with an associate in arts degree and plans to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
