July Students of the Month

Bay City campus is not currently accepting new enrollments.

Lansing: Aurora Marin is a graduate of the Medical Assistant program, and she has now returned to complete her associate degree in Medical Office Administration. She has been an exemplary student, maintaining high grades and being a team leader in completing major class projects, all while working full-time in the MA field and also achieving near-perfect attendance. “Aurora made the jump directly from high school to Career Quest, and never missed a beat,” said Lansing Campus President Mollie Woodworth. “She plans on using her Career Quest education as a springboard to eventually become a licensed practitioner, and she’s already demonstrating the professionalism that will make her a success throughout her healthcare career.”

Jackson: Mistee Vining has only been a student at Career Quest for a short time, but she has already made a big impact with CQLC staff and students. “She has taken the time to tutor any student that asks for help,” said her medical instructor, Monica Weiland. “She’s willing to literally lend her arm to her classmates when they need phlebotomy draws. Her personality puts her classmates into a great mood as soon as they enter the room. Mistee also has perfect attendance in my class while working overtime at her job. She is a great example for her fellow classmates.” Mistee shows professionalism and always has a smile on her face. She will be a great addition to the medical field, because she is clearly so caring and compassionate toward others. The world needs more people like Mistee. Congratulations!

Mount Pleasant: Rachael Rose is a model student, always going above and beyond in everything she does. “Her positive outlook and attitude have a definite effect here on campus,” said Mt. Pleasant Campus President Shelby Dalgleish. “Rachael has impressive tenacity. Despite life’s obstacles that have been thrown her way, she always comes out on top and still manages to encourage and empower others in her path.” We’re so proud of Rachael and cannot wait to see where her career takes her.

Bay City: Samantha Beson is a student who is truly blossoming in the Medical Assistant program. “She comes to campus each day with a smile on her face and a hunger to learn more,” said Bay City Campus President Cassie Ferrer. “She shows leadership in the classroom by assisting her instructor when needed and staying after class to allow students to draw on her when they need help catching up on venipunctures.” She has also taken on the challenge of tutoring newer students coming into the program. We’re excited to watch Samantha continue to grow and challenge herself in new ways.



“This program is good because it’s daily, it doesn’t give you time for slack. There is also lots of hands-on help, you’re not just left to do it all on your own. I was in college before and it just didn’t work out. Career Quest worked for me.”
