Ms. Sarah Whitaker
Letcher County Central High School History Teacher
University of the Cumberlands ‘10
My education at UC was probably the best career decision I have ever made. After graduating in December, I focused all my attention on “the job search.” I had spent four years preparing for the interviews and the questions, and now it was finally upon me. As I went in to my first interview, my resume was full of experience from college- the chapters I belonged to, the lectures I had participated in, and the reputation of UC and the History Department itself. Cumberland had offered so many opportunities to take advantage of. The board noted my participation in Phi Alpha Theta, and the department head was impressed that I was a former president just like himself. One of the interviewers was even a fellow UC alumnus! Cumberland really prepared me for the world, and because of my experience in the History Department I now have the job I’ve always wanted. I know where I’ll be getting my Masters Degree from!
