Each graduation, an Outstanding Student receives an award for exemplary performance during their education. Last week Julia Metzger of the Medical Assistant program received the award for Great Lakes at our Spring 2016 graduation ceremony. Here is what Vickie Clements, Director of Education, said about her at the event.
Julia is an ideal student: she's upbeat, works hard, and never had a bad word to say about anyone or anything. Julia was scheduled to go to externship and volunteered to go a few weeks early just to help out during a staff shortage. By the time she actually started her externship, she was well on her way to becoming an integral part of the practice. As a result, she was hired within a couple weeks of starting. Julia persevered, even through personal hardship, to make sure that she accomplished what was needed for herself and her daughter. Tonight, she's graduating with a nearly 98% grade average. We are very proud that she is now part of our alumni family.
Congratulations Julia! We wish you luck and success in your new career!
