Below is a letter regarding our students recent volunteer efforts:
Dear Mrs. Reimann and Mrs. Watkins,
I wanted to write to thank you for a great service recently performed by your massage therapy instructor, Brandy Crisel and her students. I am the faculty advisor for Jimmy’s Friends, a Southeast Missouri State University student volunteer organization that provides support in the St. Francis Medical Center Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. I also volunteer with the organization and have observed the incredible work the nurses in this unit do. Their jobs are very stressful as they care for the hospital’s tiniest patients. When I asked what more our volunteers could do for them, several had joked, “rub our shoulders?” So, I wrote to Brandy and asked if on Nurse Appreciation Day (May 6th) she or her students could do that. Did they ever! They set up four massage chairs in the NICU break room that day and offered their services from noon to 2 PM…all donated time!
So many of the nurses have told me how much they appreciated it and how wonderful the massages were. I wanted to share that gratitude with you. You have an excellent instructor and students who are very generous with their time and talent.

Students Give Back
Danielle Myers, a 1st term student at Metro Business College, Cape Campus, is a student in the Medical Specialist program. She has recently been awarded the Metro Education Group Scholarship for the October term. It is an institutional scholarship based on merit and/or need. In order to qualify for the scholarship, Danielle completed an application and submitted an essay. An excerpt from her essay is as follows:
"I never really believed that college was worth it in my case because of my circumstances right out of high school. I gave birth to my first son that summer after graduating and did not have the financial means or time to attend college full time. It wasn’t until I learned about Metro Business College that I thought a degree was obtainable. The courses that are required for this program seem like they will give me actual knowledge of the work I am pursuing. Add that in with the short amount of time and money compared to other colleges it will take to graduate, and this program seems well worth the effort it will take to obtain the skills I need to be confident as a medical specialist."
Student of the Month: Carolyn Reyes
Carolyn Reyes is in her 3rd term in the Massage Therapy program at Metro Business College. Ms. Reyes has been named as the Student of the Month at the Cape Campus.
Ms. Reyes was also recently featured in one of the Metro Business College commercials. An excerpt from the commercial---
"MBC changed my life. I drive an hour and half one way to go to massage school and it will be worth it. It was easier to come back to school than I thought it would be. I am glad I came to MBC. I have made friendships to last a life time."
50 Weeks Perfect Attendance: Mary Vickery
Mary Vickery is in her sixth term in the Medical Billing/Coding & Coding Specialist Program at the Cape Campus. She has had perfect attendance through the first five terms (50 Weeks). She has perfect attendance in this final term as well. Below is a testimonial she recently wrote about her experience at Metro Business College:
My name is Mary Vickery and I would like to share some of my thoughts about Metro Business College. While at my most recent job, I had “self-taught” myself the duties of billing and coding. With this experience, I knew that I wanted to further myself in this career. After doing some research, I found that I could do that with Metro Business College. So, I made a phone call, made an appointment, and visited the campus.
I was given a brief but thorough tour, explained how everything worked, and then signed on the dotted line. I had no idea how I was going to pay for it, or if I would fit in, but I knew I wanted to be here. I sat down with Janie and she has taken care of everything for me concerning the finances.
I chose to enter the Medical Billing/Coding Program because I wanted to gain all the knowledge that I could to enter the work force with these skills. The atmosphere was inviting, and the staff was pleasant. I knew that I had made the right decision. I am 57 now and I want to continue to be productive in the work force. I believe that I have chosen the right program for myself, and the staff has been a great asset for me to accomplish this goal.
I am close to the end of this program and feel I am going to be a great asset to any company that I end up working for. I could not have reached this point without the continued support of the teachers and office staff. I recommend Metro Business College to anyone who has time to listen to my story. You won’t be disappointed and you won’t get lost in the crowd.
