Alexandra Sherwood, Paducah, ‘09
Director of Recruiting and Career Services
University of Kentucky College of Engineering, Paducah campus
Enrolling at West Kentucky Community and Technical College was one of the first decisions Morocco native Alexandra Sherwood made after becoming an American citizen in 2006. “I was terrified at the challenge of returning to academia as a non-traditional student. However, with the support of the wonderful faculty and staff of WKCTC my decision was undeniably one of the best decisions I have ever made."
Alexandra, who graduated from WKCTC in 2009, said the college gave her confidence to continue her education. She went on to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Murray State University in organizational communication. Her dream since she first stepped through WKCTC's doors was to work at the college.That dream came true, when she became the director of recruiting and career services for the University of Kentucky College of Engineering, Paducah campus. “I want to give students the same opportunity as I had at this college.”
