At that time, Rivera did not understand the value of an education, nor did he listen to his parents' advice.

But life had more in store for Rivera, who oversees all online Adult Education programs at South Florida State College (SFSC). Through a series of unexpected events, and a lot of hard work, he transformed his life into a success story and says he's as shocked as anyone.
