Meghan Riordan

I graduated from Gettysburg Area High School in 1997. Although I did fairly well academically, my future education was unsure. The idea of college was not only intimidating, but to me, a staggering feat. No one in my immediate family graduated from college. The path was unclear, and I was scared to go to a new school. Feeling very attached to my community, I was not ready to go and considered never leaving our amazing town.

During this time, my mother was taking classes locally through HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College. Though there were very few classes available at the time, she recommended I get my feet wet taking classes while working a part-time job. This was the best decision I made at the time.

Meghan Riordan is an alumna of HACC’s Gettysburg Campus and works at J. Geoffrey Sturgill Jr., CPA, in Gettysburg.
