I was tired of saying I was going to go back to school and never taking the initiative to follow through. Finally, I did it and signed up at Ross Medical Education Center. I always doubted myself, but my instructors and the staff never did. Going to Ross was not only the best decision for me, but also for my family. I am currently working as a Medical Assistant and love my Job. If you have dreams, go for them. Never give up on your tomorrow!Jennifer Mccray Graduate Medical Assistant student at Kokomo, IN campus Graduation: December 29, 2017
