There was something missing in Shanika Meeks' life. The 30-year-old has a loving husband and two adorable children, and on top of that, she had a good-paying job. But her job didn't bring her fulfillment. She wanted more, and she knew exactly what she was missing - her GED.

Meeks dropped out of high school due to family problems and tried getting her GED through several programs, but constantly found herself dropping out of the programs. It wasn't until quitting her job after consulting with her husband and Triton College's GED program that she was able to accomplish her goal. "My instructors were very helpful and determined in helping me succeed. For the first time, I felt like I was in classes with other people who were on the same level as I was academically," she said.

Upon receiving her diploma, Meeks received a scholarship to continue her education at Triton, of which she is currently enrolled at pursuing her degree in Accounting.
