In February of 2002 I was a truck driver earning a living at something I enjoyed doing. On Feb. 20 of that month my life changed in an instant. I had an accident that ended my career.

'Powers that be' don't seem to see USM-H's real value To the editor: I have been attending UMUC (a/k/a USM) since spring 2005 via their online program. I have used the USM-H campus for my proctored tests three times each year. When I began, there were only a few students taking tests there. Each semester since, the number of test-takers has risen. Last December, two floors were used for the online testing and most rooms were filled. USM-H is flourishing. USM-H fills a need for all of Maryland's western counties.
