AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

A single mom is setting a good example for her son. Myeeshia Lyles earned her diploma in the Medical Assisting program at South Georgia Technical College, thanks to a scholarship.

She earned the first Pat Morgan Memorial Scholarship that awards single parents.

Lyles is determined not to be the only college graduate in her family, so she made sure her son enrolled at South Georgia Tech for the fall.

"It's a lot of student that are dropping out of school and some go on to get their GED some don't. I talk to my kids and let them know that it's very important to get their education," said Lyles.

Lyles says she has several job prospects. Her son will major in Computer Information Systems.
