My Motlow Story

Antwain Dobbins

Antwain Dobbins
Completing a college degree is a challenge for almost everyone who attempts it, including U.S. Army veteran Antwain Dobbins. He is currently working towards his associate of science degree at Motlow College after serving seven years in the U.S. Army, including two tours in Iraq.

Dobbins, who grew up in Bedford County and graduated from Shelbyville Central High School in 2000, finished his military service in 2011 and started going to college in Colorado, where he was once stationed.

Rachel Wood

One of the many roles that a teacher serves to students is as a mentor. People often forget that all teachers were once students who needed their own mentors. Motlow College alumnus Rachel Wood has successfully made the transition from student to teacher, thanks in part to the role of mentor that multiple Motlow instructors played in her educational path.

Before becoming an honors English teacher in Sebring, Fla., Rachel was a student at Motlow College. Through the guidance of several teachers who successfully mentored her, Wood has achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher.

Shelby Ballard

Shelby Ballard
By the time a traditional college student begins their first semester, most are entering their fourteenth consecutive year of school. It is understandable that some lose sight of the tremendous educational opportunity that college provides. In fact, many high school graduates are just not ready to begin college.

Motlow College sophomore Shelby Ballard knew it would be a mistake if she started college right after she graduated Siegel High School in Murfreesboro in 2008.

The biology major now attends Motlow with a fervor for learning.
