It is with great pleasure that we at Ross present our September 2018 Outstanding Alumni of the Month Award to Elisabeth Keeley.
As a student in the Dental Assistant program at the Ross Medical Education Center campus in Muncie, Indiana, Elizabeth maintained a 4.0 GPA and perfect attendance. Elisabeth was also nominated to be a student mentor during her program. During that time Elisabeth graciously welcomed new students and helped them to acclimate in class. She was always quick to offer encouragements and share with them how they could be successful. After completing the program, Elisabeth also became an advisory board member and attended her first meeting in the fall of 2017. She did all of this while taking care of her five children with her husband.
Elisabeth completed her externship assignment at Yorktown Family Dentistry. She did an amazing job on externship and was offered a position with them. They were impressed with Elisabeth’s initiative and willingness to learn. When speaking to the dentist, Dr. Lefevere, about Elisabeth, she said, “she is very accommodating to other staff members and what their needs are. She blended quite nicely with the practice and our patients. She also finds common ground when speaking with our patients.” They have really enjoyed having Elisabeth as a part of their team.
According to Dr. Lefevere, Elisabeth has taken initiative to learn to be an even more incredible dental assistant with on the job training. The dentist is working with her to teach her the necessary functions. She also passed her radiology exam and now holds her radiology permit for the state of Indiana. The Ross Muncie campus and the rest of the Ross family is thrilled to give this honor to Elisabeth Keeley, April 2018 Ross graduate.
