During commencement rehearsal last Thursday, graduates were asked to share their Kellogg Community College memories online with the hashtag #KCCstory for the chance to win a gift card, and many graduates did just that.
The five #KCCstory winners selected by KCC staff — each of whom will receive a $10 gift card to Biggby Coffee — are:
- Sarah Brennan, a Dental Hygiene Program graduate
- Ally Hughes, a Nursing Program graduate
- Maggie Mulder, a PTA Program graduate
- Jessica Swainston, a PTA Program graduate
- Mariah VanZandt, an early college student and Associate in Arts graduate
To view the winning posts, click through the links on each winner’s name or see the posts embedded below.
Winners can pick up their prize from the front desk in the administration office in room 301 of the Roll Health and Administration Building on KCC’s campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek, anytime during the College’s open hours. Remember the College closes at noon Fridays in May!
Thanks to everyone who used the hashtag this past week, and know that just because this contest is over doesn’t mean you can’t share your #KCCstory anytime online. We’d love to hear yours!
Last night I celebrated the completion of my long awaited and hard worked for degree of Applied Science as a Physical Therapist Assistant!!! It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but so worth it in the end! I feel so incredibly overwhelmed by the support from family, friends and classmates throughout this journey! Thank you for being understanding when I had to say ‘no’ to fun things, for praying me through exams and projects, and for all your efforts to keep me sane in this process! I am truly blessed and so grateful! #physicaltherapistassistant #graduation2018 #finally #kccstory #kelloggcommunitycollege #blessed
Yesterday I graduated as a Physical Therapist Assistant from KCC. There are so many people that came to support me and so many people that supported me along the way to get to where I am now. I’m so thankful for all of these people, my instructors at school, and my clinical instructors who shaped me to be the therapist that I am today. Becoming a PTA definitely was not an easy journey. I worked through college to graduate debt free. There were a lot of late nights and plenty of days that I just wanted a break. These people pushed me to keep going and made the difference in me becoming who I am. I couldn’t have done it without them and can’t thank them enough! #ptagrad #kccstory #physicaltherapistassistant
Today I graduate Kellogg Community College with an associates degree in arts! Since I did the Early college program, im graduating at 19 and have been nothing but successful #kccstory
