January 2019 Students of the Month

LANSING: Anthony Ashton is an IT student who brings a tremendous amount of positive energy to the classroom. He’s in the final mod of his diploma program, and he’s rolling directly into the Associate’s Program. “Despite being quiet by nature, Anthony is so enthusiastic and highly motivated to give 100% in the classroom,” shares Lansing Campus President Mollie Woodworth. “He actively participates with Student Association events, and he’s always willing to lend an extra hand.” We can always count on Anthony to help with any task given to him, big or small, in class or on campus. Congrats Anthony!

JACKSON: Administrative Assistant student Opal Collins moved her children to the Jackson area when she met with challenges, and she continues to work hard to overcome them. Now that she’s at Career Quest, she is always available to assist other students in class and she has an infectious laugh. “Opal participates with the Student Association, is consistently on the President's List, takes a leadership role both in and outside the classroom, and is always striving to better herself and her family,” said Jackson Campus President Terry Ferris. “She is on campus early to get her work done and stays late to do spot jobs. And she’s very professional.” Congrats Opal. Keep up the great work!

MT. PLEASANT: MA student Crystal Brock is an exemplary student with a positive and driven attitude. “She tackles everything thrown her way, including her academics,” says Mt. Pleasant Campus President Shelby Dalgleish. “She’s always very helpful during study sessions and encourages others to participate in open labs, while also taking part in Student Association.” There is no doubt Crystal has what it takes to become an outstanding medical assistant. Way to go Crystal!

BAY CITY: Heidi Petrimoulx is a dedicated MA student who consistently strives for perfect attendance and excellence in the classroom. “Heidi doesn’t shy away from a challenge and is always eager to speak her mind,” shares Bay City Campus President Cassie Ferrer. “She’s an excellent critical thinker who not only recognizes problems but is willing to come up with solutions.” Heidi is now in her senior mod. We’ll be sad to see her go, but we’re thrilled to see her embark on the next chapter of her life!
