November Students of the Month

LANSING: Juan Howell has stepped up and helped his fellow classmates through a plethora of team projects. He has not only excelled in his academics, but he has done so while averaging 50 to 60 hours at work each week. He has continued to excel in every course he has completed at Career Quest and now he is only days away from earning his associate degree. “He has never let obstacles stand in the way of him getting his degree and has always found solutions to obtain a high overall GPA,” said Campus President Mollie Woodworth. “He talks to his former classmates about what the associate program can do for them and encourages them to be successful.” Juan deserves to be the Student of the Month, not only for his hard work, but his character and willingness to always help his fellow classmates.

JACKSON: Jasmine Freysinger is a Business Administration student and a great role model for her fellow Career Quest students. She’s a member of the Student Association and she has been very active as a tutor and with the Ride Drive program. “She’s always going above and beyond and has a smile on her face,” said Instructor Shelley White-Thomas. “Jasmine is always willing to help others succeed and she strives for excellence for herself.” Congratulations Jasmine keep up the great work!

MT. PLEASANT: Nicole Seaborn is truly one of the most dedicated Medical Assistant students at Career Quest. Instructors speak of just how much time and effort she has put in, which has paid off as she has made the President’s List every mod she’s been here. “Nicole always has a smiling face and a positive attitude,” said Mt. Pleasant Campus President Shelby Dalgleish. “With only an externship left after this mod, she is truly going to be missed here at Career Quest.” Congratulations Nicole – we know you will do great things!

BAY CITY: Dedication is one word that comes to mind to describe Amanda (AJ) Phillips a Medical Assistant student in Bay City. As one of our students with a longer commute, she has never let that become an obstacle for her. “In fact, she’s often on campus long after her class has ended tutoring other students,” said Bay City Campus President Cassie Ferrer. “She also shows dedication by attending campus events and striving to make the Presidents List, which she has done every mod so far!”


“I am a completely different person than when I started my program. I have so much more confidence now. I really think I can do anything if I put my mind to it. Before I started here, I wasn’t very happy with my life. Now I’m smiling all the time.” 


“I feel a lot smarter and I feel more confident in myself. And it’s all because somebody took a chance on me.”
