The instructor, Mrs. Lytle, has said the following about Mariah: “Mariah is a polite, dependable, and conscientious young lady. She has a very good attitude, works diligently, and is a role model for other students. I have enjoyed assisting Mariah with her learning and growth these past two years. I know she will be an asset to the health care field. Her next step is to attend SUNY Canton where she has been accepted in the fall in the Pre-Nursing Program. I wish her the best of luck as she pursues her future endeavors.
