Student Success Stories
Tracey Marquart, University of Northwestern Ohio
Submitted by Wendell Schick, Director of Financial Aid

My age is soon to be 35. I am soon to be married for 14 years to a wonderful wife named Charolette (no that is not a spelling error), and have two children, a son named Dylan, 13 years old, and a daughter named Rayna, 7 years old. I decided to go to school because I knew that there was something better for me out there and without a degree, I knew that I would never reach my potential in business. I had 15 years management experience; however, I wanted to go to the next level and I needed a degree to do it. Working hard, I have earned my Associates Degree in Marketing and a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. Some of my accomplishments include:
