We extend heartfelt congratulations to our Phlebotomy Technician students who have successfully earned their Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) credentials. Furthermore, it is with great pride that we acknowledge two Phlebotomy Technician students who concurrently obtained their high school diploma through the Adult Diploma program.

Noteworthy among our accomplished individuals is Certified Clinical Medical Assistant Janice Parson, who achieved her CPT certification and obtained her high school diploma. A dedicated mother of six children aged 14 to 24, Ms. Parson is embarking on the next chapter of her educational journey by enrolling in the Registered Nurse program at the University of Akron alongside one of her children. Reflecting on her experience at Medina County Career Center, Ms. Parson expressed “gratitude for the wealth of knowledge acquired in a short timeframe.” She praised the program as “awesome” and commended instructor Karastan Sanchez for being exceptionally “supportive, attentive, and genuinely caring.” In addition, Ms. Parson acknowledged the “motivational and personable nature” of Mrs. Romich, Allied Health Coordinator, emphasizing her “genuine concern for the students.”

We are proud of the accomplishments of our students and look forward to witnessing their continued success in the healthcare industry!
