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.
Michelle Zelinski is a graduate of the Medical Assistant program, and was chosen by her instructors to be one of Career Quest Learning Centers class of 2020 student speakers at commencement on May 14th, 2021. Nominated for her excellent teamwork and communication in the classroom, Michelle also graduated her program with honors, excellent attendance, and an outstanding GPA. After spending 5 years at home raising her children, Michelle made the decision to return to school to find a rewarding career. “I decided one day that I was ready,” she says. “I wanted to be successful, and have a career that I would love to do every day.”
Throughout Michelle’s time at Career Quest, her passion for helping and caring for others made it clear that she would excel in her soon-to-be profession. After graduation, she was excited to take the skills that she learned and put them to good use in the field. “I work for Urgent Care Express in Mt. Pleasant. I am a Medical Assistant there,” she says. “My favorite part about working at an Urgent Care is that you never know what your day is going to be, or what kind of patients you’ll see.” Michelle’s advice to those looking to enter the medical field is to not hold back. “Being a Medical Assistant is such a rewarding career to get into. And, Career Quest is the best place to complete the program,” says Michelle. “I am forever grateful that I chose the Medical Assistant program, and the staff and friends that I met throughout the program will stick with me for a lifetime. They will always be a part of my journey.”
Michelle Zelinski is Career Quest’s 2020 class speaker because of her commitment to learning, growing, and helping others. Her education and career achievements embody what Career Quest strives for our students to be. Congratulations, Michelle. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors! We can’t wait to see what you’ll achieve in your career.
