Career Quest Learning Centers held graduations this month at both our Lansing and Jackson campuses. Hundreds of graduates were thrilled to have a capacity crowd that included so many of their family and friends.
Students graduated from a variety of programs including those in Business, Healthcare, Information Technology and Legal Studies. After all their hard work, they received awards, certificates, degrees and the well wishes of everyone at the ceremonies!
Nina Pratt, who graduated from the Jackson Medical Assistant program, was proud to have a whole row of family there to support her. First discovering her interest in medicine while in the Army, Nina knew she wanted a career in healthcare. Once she became a mom, she decided on Medical Assisting. And says Career Quest was the place for her.
“I had an amazing experience,” said Nina. “The way they taught was perfect for me. It was a lot of hands-on training and one-on-one attention.”
Nina says she was still nervous when it was time for externship, though. She wasn’t sure she was ready.
“Honestly, I was perfectly fine,” said Nina. “I used everything they taught me in class. Everyone at externship said they’d be happy to give me recommendations.”
Nina plans to take them up on it, too. She says she’s already started sending out her resume and she’s confident she’ll find work in her field in no time.
Jennifer Federeau graduated from the Administrative Assistant program at the Lansing campus on November 20th. She’s already got a job lined up, but hasn’t stopped looking and is heading out on another interview.
Jennifer says that until Career Quest, she didn’t really know what she was capable of.
“It’s because of them and the way they believe in their students that I did so well,” said Jennifer. “I did a lot better than I ever thought I would.”
According to Jennifer, she always felt like her instructors really cared about her. They encouraged her to work hard and never give up.
Jennifer didn’t give up. She graduated with honors and her 87 year old grandmother was in the audience to congratulate her.
