Richmond Campus Students Demonstrate their Skills during Chamber Event

Feb 04, 2015

The Richmond Campus recently participated in the Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Kickoff. During the event, medical assisting students Sarah Young and Melissa Crowe performed blood pressure checks and shared information about their program.

The Richmond Campus was recently recognized for 25 years of continuous service and support to the Richmond Chamber. Campus director Keeley Gadd is very active in the organization, serving on its executive board as the vice president of shared partnerships where she helps oversee the Economic Development Committee, Madison County Business & Education Partnership (MCBEP), and the Work-Ready Committee. Career center director Cynthia Hansel also serves as an ambassador for the chamber.

Melissa felt that it was an honor to represent her school at the event, where she met many new and interesting people from the community. “The experience allowed me to not only practice my skills, but gave me experience working with individuals that I don’t know, just like I will when I’m on the job,” she said.

“Everyone was so nice and helpful, which gained my respect for the citizens here,” added Sarah. “The experience also gave me confidence that I will be able to fulfill my duties as a medical assistant.”
