Student Speaker for May 14, 2021 Graduation
It’s Career Quest Learning Centers’ first virtual commencement ceremony! We are so excited to be celebrating our graduates and all of their accomplishments. In honor of our celebration, we want to highlight each of our three very special students who have been chosen by their instructors to be Career Quest’s featured student speakers of the night. We interviewed our speakers and asked them about their time at Career Quest and what they’re up to now that they’re graduated and working in field.
Beverly Greene signed up for the Medical Assistant program at Career Quest Learning Centers Jackson, MI campus in the fall of 2019, taking a chance and not knowing where this journey might take her. Flash forward, and she is nominated for class speaker at graduation. “I was at a dead end job with no room to grow,” Beverly says. Like many other Career Quest students, she had tried other educational avenues before that didn’t work out for her. “I went through the Medical Assistant program at Jackson College, and I never got the hands on and one-on-one training that I needed. Career Quest makes this happen,” she says.
Beverly is known at Career Quest for her over-and-beyond performance, and for always looking out for her classmates. She was an exceptional student in the classroom with great work ethic, drive, and a passion for helping others. Beverly says the things that most interested her about her education were “studying the human body and the different things that could affect it. I also loved phlebotomy.” Earning all of her chords and rocking out externship, it was no surprise when Beverly landed her position in-field as an MA. “I am a Medical Assistant at Oaklawn Endocrinology,” she says. “We work with patients that deal with diabetes and thyroid issues.” Beverly says she loves working in endocrinology because there is so much to learn with new medications and treatments coming out every day. “I also love being able to teach patients how to take care of themselves to better their every day lives. It makes my day!” she says.
According to Beverly, being a Medical Assistant “takes dedication and compassion for your patients.” We have no doubt that she embodies these qualities, and all that Career Quest aspires our students to be. She was chosen as class speaker for these very reasons. Congratulations and the best of luck from your Career Quest family.
