“As a military veteran I was in desperate need of a feeling of community and belonging. CMCC gave me that and so much more.”
After graduating from high school, Coral Buck enlisted in the Marine Corps as a way to do more with her life and earn money to continue her education. After four years as an ammunition technician, she returned home and began dreaming of college. She enrolled at CMCC as one of the first students in the college’s new life sciences degree program. She plans to graduate in May 2017 and transfer to the University of New England’s medical biology program, with the goal of becoming a family dentist. In 2016 she was named CMCC’s Student of the Year and she and her husband welcomed a second child into their family.
