“Returning to Moraine Valley was best thing I could ever have done. Moraine Valley is the place to be.”
Echols discusses coming to Moraine Valley because she needed to support her kids following a divorce. A Criminal Justice major, she is now a court advocate for DCFS and will begin law school at Northwestern School of Law in June 2017. She credits her public speaking professor with encouraging her to begin a motivational speaking group, Sister2Sister Network. Her successes have led to her induction into the college’s first Alumni Hall of Fame class.
