Student Balances School and Jobs

With attending school full time and holding down both a full-time and a part-time job, it’s a wonder that Elisabeth Pena has what it takes to be named Perry’s August Student of the Month.

But according to her instructors, Elisabeth has more than enough qualities to earn the honor. “Elisabeth exemplifies the qualities that you want, not just in a student, but in a future employee,” says Lashel Church, head of  Perry’s Medical Technology Programs.

Elisabeth is enrolled in Perry’s Medical Office Administration & Coding Program. Her grades and work ethic have helped her to finance her education – she’s been awarded a total of five scholarships.

Elisabeth will graduate in March 2016 and she hopes to remain in Yakima or move to the Tri-Cities and work in a large health care facility such as a hospital.
