Rebecca has been active in school fundraisers and events while attending Globe. She is thoughtful and always eager to help.

“Rebecca is very friendly and has welcomed the new students with open arms. She also has been very kind, and for the last two quarters, she has given rides to medical assistant students when they need them. These students don’t live by her, and she has been known to even come back when she does not have class but just wants to make sure everyone gets home safely,” said Medical Assistant Program Chair Amy Zobel. “She also was kind enough to deliver all of the food for Harvest of Hope on behalf of Globe over Thanksgiving. She is a really great student, and I am excited to see where this program takes her.”

Here is what Rebecca said about her Student of the Month honor:

“I decided to start school again after working at a minimum wage job for several years. I knew I could do better and was capable of achieving all my goals. I came to Globe because everyone I met was very friendly and motivated me. I loved how every staff member made it easy and fun to enroll in school. I chose the medical assistant program because I have wanted to work in the medical field since I was little.

Amy Zobel is my program chair and instructor in several classes. She motivates me and is helping me to ‘break out of my shell.’  She pushes me to try my best in everything. I have always been a quiet person, but now with a push from Amy, I feel confident,and I’m even trying to help others students in the program.

My advice for incoming students is to never give up! We are all capable of achieving what we set our minds to.”
