Tammy Chewning – Student Highlight

Tammy Chewning is a Legal Office Assisting student at WVJC Morgantown and a member of the Student Government Association.  Like most students at WVJC, this is not her first attempt at college, but she has found a college that fits her needs and goals. “I love the staff and faculty. The experience they bring to the classroom is exemplary and if you need anything, they are right there to help, both personally and professionally.”

Tammy came to WVJC looking to continue her medical career. However, upon a closer look at the program offerings, decided that the Legal Office Assisting program would be a better fit.  “(Before WVJC) I worked as an EMT.  I started off in a medical program, but with the guidance of my instructors, I changed my program of interest to Legal Office Assisting.”  She credits two faculty members with this guidance.  Bryce Adkins and Dustin Blankenship have been instrumental in Tammy’s success at WVJC.  “Bryce and Dustin are always there as a sounding board for me. (They) listen when I need it and are always there when I have questions.”

Tammy has been greatly impacted by the faculty at the WVJC campus.  She had attended online school in the past, but having face-to-face communication with faculty, and instant feedback when she needs it has been vital to her success.  Tammy wants to work in a law firm upon graduation and looks forward to a career that affords her the ability to vacation occasionally.  When asked where she wants to be in five years, she said “On a beach somewhere.”

Tammy has enjoyed her experience at WVJC so much, that she recommended WVJC to a friend who is also now a student.
