GED Graduate Quickly Dives into National College Medical Programs
Jun 25, 2012
On Thursday, June 14, Virgie Douglas, director of admissions for the Richmond Campus, attended the Madison County GED graduation ceremony to support soon-to-be National student Frances “Marie” Lamb.
Frances “Marie” Lamb is enrolled in the medical assisting and pharmacy technician programs and began classes on June 18th, just four days after earning her GED. She met with Virgie after a friend recommended National to her. When Marie mentioned that she’d be at the GED graduation ceremony, Virgie told her that she’d be there to cheer her on as she received her diploma. “National College always attends the GED graduation,” Virgie said. “It’s what we do…as far as showing support.”
After attending a couple of classes, Marie feels encouraged. She said she likes that the programs will take her just 2 years to complete. “I want to get a better career,” she explained.
