Prairie State College submitted a story earlier this week that shows how powerful the desire to be successful can be.
Radiance Walker got her diploma from Prairie State College May 19. With that diploma came a sense of accomplishment, not just for achieving one of her major goals, but for inspiring her mother, sister and brother to do the same. Radiance's time at Prairie State may indirectly spawn a screenwriter, a nurse and a music producer. As for her own success, Radiance said she will always be grateful for her time at Prairie State.

To read more about the Walkers' story, take a look at the original article from Prairie State College.
