Rachel Rood

My name is Rachel Rood and on September 22nd I became a soldier in the United States Army. Joining the military is a huge accomplishment for me and has a significant impact on my future career. For joining, I received $35,500 towards my college education. I can’t thank West Sound Tech staff enough for allowing recruiters to come in and talk to the students.

I never really thought about a future career until I took West Sound Technical Skill Center’s Professional Medical Careers program last year. Now I know exactly what I am doing with my life and how I am going to get there. My goal while in the military is to become a corrections officer. But I will also be attending Olympic College full time to get my associates degree in Health Occupations. I am extremely and forever thankful to WST staff for helping me make my dreams come true.
