The medical assisting program on the Swainsboro campus of Southeastern Technical College (STC) held a pinning ceremony for its summer 2018 graduates on July 25 in the Maurice Boatwright Auditorium.
The graduates were Antonio Burke, Amber Smith, Jessica Esparza, Janeth Terry, Georgia Butler and Savannah Beck from Swainsboro, Jadah Mack from Wrightsville, Laverne Willingham from Wadley, and Dinedra Hollins from Midville.
Instructor Kimbie Brown congratulated and pinned the graduates. “I am extremely proud of this group of graduates. They have all worked very diligently to accomplish their goal of becoming a medical assistant and serving the healthcare community in physician offices throughout the area.”
Gail Ware, VP Institutional Effectiveness said, “I am so proud of our medical assisting graduates. Kimberly Brown does an excellent job training her students to work alongside physicians and nurses in medical offices and clinics. They are valuable team members. Medical assistants have multiple responsibilities performing both administrative and clinical tasks. They are instrumental in helping patients feel comfortable with their treatment/exam and often explain the physician’s instructions.”
