I had always dreamed about getting a degree from UVA, but it always seemed out of reach.
A photograph of 托里hobgood



When Hobgood had the chance to join the BIS Alumni Board, she jumped at the chance. “I am a very proud alumna,” she says. “And I am very proud that UVA has a program for nontraditional students.
