Motivational Speaker


Two years ago when my son started talking about going to college I didn’t have a clue what to do or how to help him. Another parent referred me to Mrs. Grant (now Dr. Grant), an experienced and caring parent, who sat with us and explained the basics of the college admissions process. She assisted my son with completing college applications, the financial aid packet and the works. My son and I will never forget her. We are constantly in touch with her about his progress. He is now a graduate student at  Garrett Evangelical Seminary , Evanston, Illinois majoring in music education and doing well.”
- Minnie, a Claflin Graduate Mom

“I am so thankful for Dr. Grant’s help. Even after the end of my first year in college, I was undecided about what to major in. She assisted me with career  interest assessments, such as the Personality Mosaic and Kuder, in choosing a program that interested me. She also told me about the importance of community service when applying for college scholarships.”  Kiera is now a Certified Occupational Therapist, and Coordinator for the Clare Bridge Program  at Brookdale in Greenville, SC
