Lucretia Lee: "The will to support five children and attend college full time."
To many who meet her, Lucretia Lee is a true “superwoman”. A single mother of five, she attends college full-time and works part-time to support her family. In spite of her hectic schedule, you’ll never hear a complaint or hint of sarcasm. Lucretia relishes in the fact that she can study with her two-year old in her lap. She has great respect for what education can do for her. It’s a way of dealing with life’s problems and looking toward the future.
Amidst the challenges she has faced in life, Lucretia has been able to maintain focus on her goals and aspirations. Prior to entering Adams County & Goodwill’s Career Development programs, Lucretia was temporarily homeless, unemployed, living away from her children and had very low self-esteem. Now she’s enrolled in college and working in the Dean’s office at Front Range Community College. She is also receiving a full scholarship from the Daniel’s Fund and has publisher interest in a book she’s writing largely based on her own life.
This “superwoman” will continue to develop goals and dreams for herself, while maintaining financial independence and self-sufficiency along the way.
