THREE YEARS ago, Christina Morton went back to school to get her GED, hoping for a promotion in her job helping people with intellectual disabilities. Her daughter Mellitta Bailey was already enrolled at Community College of Philadelphia, on course to become a registered nurse. But Morton got injured at her job, tearing both the ACL and meniscus in her left knee, and stopped working to recuperate. That's when Bailey suggested her mother enroll in CCP, too. "She encouraged me," said Morton, who enrolled in 2013.
