Dr. Charles Barker and Dr. Sheila Barker have really helped me throughout my time in college in multiple ways, such as making sure I was set financially, socially, and academically. We have had discussions about a lot of different things which are beneficial because having someone to talk to is extremely important when something is new to you. The Barkers have been extremely vital in my first year for college success and I hope to have them throughout my college career. Thanks guys! I really appreciate you!!!
University of Georgia
The Barkers have helped me transition into the college student I am today. When first starting college I was not aware of the difficulties that I would face and I was not prepared for them. The Barkers offered a listening ear and helping hand whenever something was going on, whether good or bad. When dealing with things on campus they would either guide me on how to approach and fix the situation or fix the situation themselves. This summer I enrolled in classes at a different college and the Barkers were there every step of the way, encouraging me to be the best student I could be. When I faced difficulty with professors at the university they were diligent with helping me and finding a solution. When I struggled academically they encouraged me to be my best going forward. Most importantly they helped me keep a scholarship that they knew I so badly needed.
Berkley School of Music
When I met the Barkers, I was basically homeless, living in Dublin, Ga. I had a dream of attending Berkley School of Music in Boston, Massachussetts. They continued to encourage me and opened the doors to this prestigeous school. I owe ecerything to them. They visited me in Boston and advised me. I will graduate 2018. I will not forget them.
