MEDFORD, Ore. -- A group of inspirational speakers are trying to help local students answer that question, "What should I do with my life?" Their answer has to do with seeking out higher education with community college. 

On Wednesday, Roadtrip Nation came to Rogue Community College in Medford to speak with students who are looking into what they can accomplish with an associates degree. 

The group is made up of speakers who sought out opportunities through community college themselves. They now share their experiences - going city to city in a big, green RV. 

"It's way cheaper than going to a university," said Robert Saltzman, a brand ambassador for Roadtrip Nation. "So if you don't know what you want to do exactly or if you're trying to figure that out, you can go to community college and take that time to figure out what it is that you're passionate about and then move on to a four year college."

Roadtrip Nation presented a film called, "One Step Closer," which spotlights leaders across the country who sought out community college education. 

The group will travel cross-country and deliver a similar message. 

Roadtrip nation partnered with ECMC Group and ECMC Foundation. You can learn more about ECMC and Roadtrip Nation by clicking here.
