Choosing to continue your education after high school is a big decision that impacts not only your life but those closest to you. WVJC-Online Medical Assisting student Racheal Huggins made that very choice when she decided to attend WVJC-online for her Associate degree. Racheal is what is generally called, a non-traditional student; meaning that she waited a few years after high school before attending college. Making the decision to wait on attending college is both a blessing and a struggle to many online students.
When Racheal started inquiring about applying to WVJC-Online for Medical Assisting, she already had family obligations that were her number one priority, a husband, and her four-year-old daughter. Finding a college that gave her the flexibility to continue in her role as wife and mom, was a concern that weighed heavy on her mind. During her attendance at WVJC-Online, she had the opportunity to have one-on-one conversations with instructors, hands-on clinicals close to home, and the support of all staff members at WVJC-online. Needless to say, Racheal found her balance between college and family life that ultimately put her on the path to graduate from WVJC-Online with her Associate degree in Medical Assisting. She is continuing to make WVJC-Online and her family proud with dedication and persistence.
