Bethany resident Linda Philie, age 79, was a freshman at Southern Connecticut State University in 1960, and she now prepares to graduate from Southern for the fourth time in her life. As she looks back over the years, she says, “Southern was there for me every step of the way.”
Philie this month receives her post-master’s certificate in clinical mental health counseling, after earning a bachelor’s in elementary education and history from Southern in 1964, a master’s in counseling and school psychology in 1984, and a 6th year certificate in counseling and school psychology in 1988. She also completed a master’s in government and international relations at Clark University in 1972.
“It has been an extraordinary journey,” Philie says, “and I am so grateful to Southern for being there for me and my family at every step along the way.”
