Angela Lenkner

First Gator Graduate through UF Online’s Employer Partnership with Walmart

Angela Lenkner, 44, decided to complete her bachelor’s after being laid off from her job of almost eight years at a security company. After exploring the job market, Lenkner accepted a job at her local Walmart Superstore in Texas.

When first accepting the position, Lenkner didn’t expect to have her education paid for in full by Walmart. That was until she learned about Walmart’s Live Better U education program. This employer-paid education program through Walmart allowed Lenkner to use her benefits to earn a University of Florida bachelor’s degree in Business Administration via UF Online.
