Stephen Belde

"The hybrid format of Chadron State College and the Anchorage School district’s Master’s in Education Administration program was ideal for me because between working and having a family, I didn’t have time to go to school so I would not have decided to further my education at this time. The online portion allowed for me to be self-paced while the in-person classes allowed me to collaborate with colleagues and apply the information we were learning. The Chadron staff were supportive and knowledgeable and our local administrators worked together to meet any needs we had. The cohort allowed for me to build new relationships with those in my district who I now have a working relationship with and can seek professional support from. —Stephen Belde, MAE, Education Administration

Jess Winn

"I really enjoyed the opportunity for a blended learning experience that was tailored to my state and district. The enthusiasm the whole college showed in assisting me through my master's program was really welcoming for the online student. —Jess Winn, MAE, Education Administration

"I really enjoyed the process of completing my master’s in Education Administration at Chadron State through the Anchorage School District and Chadron State Partnership. Being able to participate in classes with colleagues and professors in our own school district was extremely valuable. —Matthew Witthoeft, MAE, Education Administration
