It has been an honor and a pleasure to have spent the last year with them; guiding them through to the end of their goal. Watching them reach that goal is the best part of what I do at SRTC. I am looking forward to seeing where each of them go from here. They all have so much potential and I believe they will fulfill every bit of that potential in the medical field. Congratulations Class of 2018 Medical Assistants,” stated SRTC Medical Assisting Program Chair Sherry Harrison, CMA (AAMA), AAS.
