SIMPLICITY AND HARD WORK ARE ELYRIA WOMAN’S MANTRA

Melanie Males, of Elyria, who is earning an associate of applied science degree from LCCC, said her mantra for success is “… simple hard work.”

A presidential scholarship student in high school, Males came to LCCC with a clear goal in mind – to earn her associate degree  in a college that was right down the street from her. Seeing the simple and relatable campus and the helpful professors, she decided that she would stay for more reasons than one.

Males intends to work at a hospital following her graduation as a radiology technician, which she is simultaneously preparing for. She also intends to finish her Bachelor of Allied Health and Science degree from Youngstown State University through the University Partnership. She will being coursework in fall 2014. 

What made her foray in to higher education easier was the help she got from the professors and administrative staff at LCCC. She could take courses at her convenience, including several online courses, and still support herself with a job. The tutoring center was another helpful source in her road to success.

“I owe my achievements to my supportive family and the great friends I made here at LCCC,” Males said.
