Featured Success Stories

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for eight great months! Your outstanding teaching skills and guidance have helped me through my journey at Drake Medox College. I have never come across a teacher such as you; someone who shows so much compassion and genuine interest towards their students.

    Thank you for your constant enthusiasm, which helped us all stay focused and alert during all those late night classes. Because of you, we came excited to learn because you came excited to teach. School would have been challenging without your support in reviewing topics as many times as necessary to ensure the whole class understood. I truly feel blessed to have had such a kind and caring person as my guide through the Community Support Worker program. I am now eager to apply all that I have learned in my new career, and will always be inspired by your mentorship.

    ~ Joan Gamonnac - CSW Graduate

  • I graduated from Drake Medox College in 2012, and worked for 2 years as a Health Care Assistant. I am proud to tell you that since then I returned to school and I am now a LPN working with Elim Village Senior Care Society in this capacity. I would like to thank all the instructors and mentors at Drake Medox College for all their support and encouragement while I was taking my initial step towards becoming a Healthcare professional here. I was always certain that this was the field I wanted to be in, and my training at Drake Medox opened so many doors for me. As my personal journey continues, I am planning to return to school yet again to become a Registered Nurse as I have such a strong interest in medicine and passion for helping others. Thank you again everyone at Drake Medox for being part of my success story!
