Huge smiles from Mothers Making More (M3) Coordinator Kate Romano as she presented participant Elaine Smith with a car. Elaine is the first participant to receive a car through M3’s car lease program. Elaine heard of M3 in February 2012 while working two part-time jobs and supporting her daughter. She is an active M3 participant and occasionally volunteers to co-facilitate the Economic Stability classes. As an IT major with a 4.0 GPA, Elaine currently works at the Help Desk on WCCC’s Youngwood Campus, and is anticipated to graduate in Fall 2014. She was recently elected Treasurer of WCCC’s Student Government Association and is quickly becoming a familiar face on campus to newer participants of the program. Congratulations, Elaine!
