Outstanding Student Award - Danisha Goodwine

Posted On 10/14/2015

Each graduation, an Outstanding Student receives an award for exemplary performance during their education. Last week Danisha Goodwine of the Medical Office Assistant program received the award for Great Lakes at our Fall 2015 graduation ceremony. Here is what Vickie Clements, Director of Education, said about her at the event.

Danisha came to Great Lakes because she needed something to occupy her mind, following the tragic loss of her 17 year old son in a car accident. Tonight, she is graduating with a perfect 4.0. Danisha is an outstanding citizen in her community, providing activities and support to help at-risk young people in Erie. She started a scholarship fund at Strong Vincent High School and founded Fly Guy Nation in honor of her son. Danisha is a great role model, always had a smile on her face, and got a job at her externship site. She finds the positive in every situation. She truly is an inspiration to us all.

Congratulations Danisha! We wish you luck and success in your new career!
