On A Roll!

August 2014

Dereka Brown Receives AwardFSE would like to congratulate Dereka Brown, Administrative Assistant at the CDC Atlanta, for receiving an award for making honor roll all year at Strayer University. Currently pursuing a degree in accounting, Dereka works full time and attends classes in the evenings. "It takes a lot of scheduling, and a lot of discipline, but it can be done," says Dereka, "and a whole lot of praying!"

Dereka celebrated her accomplishment with a vacation with her sisters. "It was a celebration not to read anything I didn't want to read or write a paper," said Dereka, explaining that during the school year she had to write a paper every weekend.

Despite the hard work, Dereka says it is worth it. "I am really enjoying myself, believe it or not; I really am!"
