Billie Mitchell enjoys commencement exercises, especially when watching adults students graduate whom she’s helped through Parkland’s Adult Re-entry Center. Each event is “full of challenges overcome, the success of the night, and promise of the future,” she says. The Monticello native, who also completed her degrees long after high school, says she enjoys the diversity of students at Parkland as well as the opportunity to assist others in reaching their dreams.

Billie, who dreamed of being in an all-girl singing group as a youth, has highly eclectic musical tastes and loves playing tennis and caring for animals. She’d recommend Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, if you need to get away, and Jim Gould’s restaurant in Champaign for a tasty lunch. It’s not surprising that her favorite quote, by comedian Bill Cosby, is, “Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.”
