Career Center Director Inspires Friend to Return to School

Dec 01, 2014

Melissa Moore, career center director at the Dayton Area Campus, met Samantha ‘Sammi’ Lawrence while Sammi was working at a local drive-thru.

“After developing a friendship, I could see that she had great potential, so I suggested that she consider going back to school,” recalled Melissa.

Sammi was interested in the surgical technology program, so Melissa arranged for her to meet with Ken Chandler, admissions representative, and Monica Wiley, surgical technology department chair. She was immediately impressed with American National University and the Dayton Area Campus staff and faculty, so she enrolled right away and got started in the surgical technology program.

Sammi has been very satisfied with the small, hands-on classes at National, and she’s enjoying making new friends that are on the same track as her. “I owe you so much; this opportunity to go to school means so much to me,” Sammi told Melissa. “Now I have my name badge, homework, and school stress, and I just couldn't be happier. Thank you for getting me into this school. I needed this, and I'm loving it!”

With so many opportunities ahead, Sammi can’t wait to graduate and get started in her new career field.

Career center director Melissa Moore (R) encouraged her friend Sammi Lawrence to return to school to help her advance in her career.
