Each graduation, an Outstanding Student receives an award for exemplary performance during their education. Last week Allison Pistner of the Dental Assistant program received the award for Great Lakes at our Summer 2015 graduation ceremony. Here is what Vickie Clements, Director of Education, said about her at the event.
Allison was chosen for this award because of her motivation and drive to continue through this program, regardless of her struggles. The past 10 months weren't an easy ride for Allison. She struggled with attendance because of transportation issues, and she worked hard to earn every grade she received. Program Director Calista Slomski says, "Having Allison in my class was a very rewarding experience. I watched her grow into an assertive, confident, professional young lady." While she was on externship, she was not only offered a full time job, but the doctor also offered her the apartment attached to the dental office. Allison always made the class fun and was loved by everyone.
Congratulations Allison! We wish you luck and success in your new career!
