National Student Honored with Scholarship
Jun 08, 2012
Student Nora Kreidler-Estes was recently awarded a scholarship through the Tri County Chapter of Medical Assistants based on her commitment to pursuing a medical assisting career.
Before enrolling the medical assisting program at the Youngstown Campus in March 2011, Nora worked at a bakery with long, unforgiving hours and no benefits. She knew she needed a change. She started to consider attending college when she attended at a local One-Stop Workforce System seminar. She saw the medical field growing with so many opportunities, branching into areas she did not know existed. At the suggestion of a friend, she decided to look at National College and was impressed with the small class sizes, the outstanding job placement rates, and the services that are offered should she need help with her classes. With her education, Nora hopes to one day work in a dialysis center.
“Nora's compassion, professionalism, and perseverance will lead her into a great position as a medical assistant,” said Instructor Paula Kelley. “She is always practicing her skills and helping others by way of study groups and role-playing. She really goes out of her way for others and displays the attributes of a real professional.”
