Why are you "forever green"?

"Northwest played a significant role in shaping me into a business professional, for which I will be forever grateful. My focus on Northwest is the students – helping the next generation of professionals be ready to fulfill their dreams and admirations. 25% of all Northwest students are first generation college students, being able to help those students obtain their goals is so moving to me! Bearcats truly are family, once you experience, you will understand and agree."
