Will Carmickle, who graduated in December of 2016, says that the reason he chose Morthland College was that it gave him the opportunity to both play basketball and finish his college degree. He says that Morthland has given him a greater understanding of what hard work and persistence are. There were times when it was a struggle to balance both playing a sport and getting his coursework completed, but thanks to the assistance of MC’s faculty and staff, Will was able to accomplish both. His ultimate goal is to use his Bachelor’s degree to get into the State Police Academy and become an Illinois State Trooper.
