Farah Hassan Ahmedi ’10 wanted to become the first in her family to earn a college degree, and after completing two summer school classes, Ahmedi officially received her bachelor’s degree in international business and management in August.

She participated in Commencement but “when my summer school is over, I want to put my gown on again to really celebrate,” says Ahmedi. She was not able to attend classes during spring term because she was married June 3, 2009, and gave birth to a baby boy, Jusuv Elham Hassan, in May.

Stephanie Ryding

Stephanie chose management as one of her majors because she loves to work with people. While at North Central, she discovered "a love for the personal interaction involved with education and mentoring.” This year she is combining her management degree with those newfound passions as she pursues a master's in higher education administration at Marquette University. Ultimately she hopes to work at a small liberal arts college "just like North Central."
