People's Choice Award Winner Explains How National Has Helped Her

Dec 10, 2013

Chereka Fox won the “People’s Choice Award” for American National University’s Essay Contest by answering the question “How Has My American National University Education Helped Me”?

Chereka is a student in the medical assisting degree program at the South Bend Campus and said she immediately became comfortable with the small class sizes and campus staff in South Bend. “I've been to many different colleges but none compares to American National University,” Chereka explained. 

Chereka wasn’t confident in her ability to finish a degree program but she feels proud of herself for making it almost through.  She is on track to graduate in February, 2014. 

“I knew American National University is where I belonged,” she said in her essay.  “American National University helped me realize that I could actually finish and not procrastinate.  I thank American National University and all that they have done for me.  I'm finally going to have the career I've always dreamed of and I'm not going to stop there.”

With 105 votes from Facebook users, Chereka’s essay won the most votes. Have you “liked” the American National University Facebook pages?  Go to and click on the “about” section to see a list of all the available campus Facebook pages.
