Shelaina Jones is a recent graduate of West Virginia Junior College Bridgeport Medical Office Management program. She chose this program because of its solid future career outlook.
Shelaina tried other colleges before coming to West Virginia Junior College and explained that the atmosphere is what helped her make her decision.
She said, “At the other college I attended, I didn’t enjoy it because the campus is too big, the classes are too big and it was really hard to get to know others. It was different at WVJC. I made so many friends and between fellow students, the staff and faculty, you are never seen as just another face in the crowd.”
Now a graduate of the MOA program, Shelaina has a career working in her field of study in Bridgeport, WV.
Her advice to new students is, “Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be,” quoted by Rick Warren.
She says that choosing a person that supported her most is a hard decision. She explained, “I feel like everyone at WVJC is in your corner. I don’t know what I would have done without Nancy Gilbert – she was always there for me and helped me succeed!”
