Education Connection, an online resource website that helps prospective students find colleges that are ideally suited for their academic and career interests, today announced actress Shannen Doherty as its new spokesperson. Doherty is currently earning her Liberal Arts degree online from a university she found through EducationConnection.com.
“We are pleased to introduce Ms. Doherty as the new spokesperson for Education Connection. As a student herself, she demonstrates that it is possible to earn a college degree despite a challenging schedule and years spent away from school,” said Richard Capezzali, President of Education Connection. “Hopefully prospective students will be encouraged by her experience and consider pursuing their degree as well.”
Earlier this year, the former Beverly Hills 90210 star decided to improve herself by continuing her education. Limited by frequent travel and a demanding career, an online college degree program was the only realistic option. With its extensive school directory and the ability to search by degree level and interest area, Education Connection helped Ms. Doherty explore what options were available to earn her degree and discover the best program.
“Education Connection helped me find a way to go back to school. The site made it easy for me to choose the right program and earn my degree while maintaining my busy lifestyle,” said Doherty. “I made the decision to do something smart for my future and I want to inspire others to do the same.”
