Barb Klett

Barb Klett was divorced with 6 children when she came through the Project Succeed Program, at the Eberly Center for Women, in 1992. She had plenty of self-doubt and little self-esteem. Regarding going back to school after more than 20 years she said, "I asked myself- could I do it?" Though scared to begin, she tried and she succeeded! She wore her cap and gown at the December 1996 graduation from the University of Toledo's Community and Technical College with a degree in Administrative Office Skills, and she will be starting her Bachelor's program this January. She works full-time in Dean Edwards Office at the Scott Park Campus. Barb says "Project Succeed gave me confidence." She recently told our latest Project Succeed class "Don't give up. You have to think about yourself, and take care of YOU, because someday your children will be gone." Indeed, she has been a good example for her children, by working hard to better herself. Barb said "I showed them that Mom didn't stay at the bottom. I got on with my life." Now, her adult son has enrolled at UT. Project Succeed can touch MANY lives.
