For some students starting college can be daunting, especially because it is unfamiliar territory. However, West Virginia Junior College Charleston is not just any college. The staff and faculty support students from the initial admissions meeting to graduation and beyond. Certified Dental Assistant, Jesse Rose, knows this first hand.
Jesse was not nervous about starting college because he had always been interested in the dental field.
He says one of his favorite parts of college was getting to meet so many people and making friends. Not only were his classmates encouraging and supportive but Jesse says he always felt supported by the WVJC employees.
“The faculty was nice and encouraging. I have to thank Ms. Hale [the Dental Program Coordinator]. She was always encouraging and so supportive,” said Rose.
Throughout his time in the Dental Assisting program, Jesse excelled. Jesse maintained a high GPA and graduated in September 2014. Today he works as a Certified Dental Assistant for Wilson Martino Dental.
Jesse advises future and current dental students to push themselves and follow their goals.
“Do what you love and love what you do. Aim high and shoot for the stars because you just never know what you just might achieve,” encourages Rose.
