“The more time I spent on campus, the more I wanted to do. At first I thought I would just show up, go to class and be done, but my first semester changed that. I’m so glad I did so much more. I was given an opportunity to go back to school, and I wasn’t going to waste it.”
After 26 years working in the banking industry, Katie Williams-Campbell found herself laid off in 2013. With two children at home, she knew that if she went back to school for a new career, it had to be close and affordable, but she didn’t know Macomb would deliver those benefits plus so many opportunities to connect socially. Katie became a member of the Student Organization of Medical Assistants, an active participant in the Macomb Mulitcultural International Initiatives, and a tour guide for incoming students. She graduated Summa Cum Laude in December and now works as a clinical service representative at Henry Ford Hospital and as a certified medical assistant in Shelby Township. Her daughter, Lauren, works at Macomb’s Reading & Writing Studios.
