Unlocking the Doors to College and Career Success
guidance to benefit not only current and future college students, but also
their parents, teachers, administrators, and other mentors who want to
enhance a student's chance of success in college and in life.
Authors Arthur G. Sharp and his daughter, Kristine E. Barnett, provide the
principles and keys to success in the educational process based on their
experiences as students, professors, and parents. By reinforcing the
importance of such values as hard work, diligence, and integrity, Sharp and
Barnett show students how to persevere and succeed both inside and outside
the classroom. Unlocking the Doors to College and Career Success includes
not only personal anecdotes and inspirational quotes from successful people
from different backgrounds and eras; it also shares Sharp and Barnett's
professional experiences with other administrators and colleagues.
Unlocking the Doors to College and Career Success encourages you to
think like a team when it comes to a student's educational accomplishments,
and to understand that success is rarely realized based on individual efforts.
