Lansing, MI (March 26, 2015) – Eva Edgecomb was selected as the March Student of the Month for the Career Quest College campus in Lansing
. Edgecomb, a proud mother of two and grandmother of one, walked in to Career Quest to inquire about the Certified Nurse Aide program. “My incentive for going into the medical field is the loss of my daughter. She was a special needs child who spent most of her 18 years of life at Sparrow Hospital,” Edgecomb said. “With a total of 38 surgeries, many sleepless nights, and countless prayers and tears, I would not have survived that experience without the support of the awesome medical staff.”
Edgecomb was selected because “she is an excellent example of leadership and hard work,” said Melissa Soderberg, Lansing campus president. “Eva’s dedication to her education is admirable, she excels in all her classes and has maintained a 94 percent in all of them.” Edgecomb also participates in Career Quest’s Ride Share program that focuses on aiding students by providing them rides to school.
“I want to be that person who supports and makes a difference in the lives of others,” she said. “It’s my passion and that makes the hard work worth it. I’ve had some awesome instructors here and I just want to thank the staff here at Career Quest for helping me.”
