Eight students in the 2017 graduating class of the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Madisonville Community College (MCC) were awarded Leader of Professional Excellence certificates. Each student completed a professional portfolio consisting of employment documents, reflection pieces of time spent in campus and community service, professional development or networking activities, and recommendations from those who can attest to their professionalism. The portfolios were thoroughly reviewed by a subcommittee from the MCC Personal Effectiveness Skills workgroup. Receiving the MCC Leader of Professional Excellence certificates for 2017 were Kristen Brooks, Courtney Cain, Courtney Darnell, Emily Fleming, Joshua Flener, Rachel Rhodes, Amy Tippett, and Daniel Warga.
