ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – A Rockford school is celebrating ten years of adding educated students to our local workforce.
Rasmussen College is celebrating ten years at its Rockford location. They say since opening the doors, the college has graduated more than 1,500 students in a variety of careers including accounting business management and early childhood education.
Alum Bonnie Moore says she was able to take classes at the school after she was laid off eight years ago.
“So it has changed my life and now I'm in a career that is stable and at my age I have a long-term career possibility. They accepted me in the field at an older age and I really enjoy what I do,” says Rasmussen College alum, Bonnie Moore.
Moore lost her job during the recession. She now works at the college.
