Congratulations to Chrystal Comer for being selected as the June 2016 Student of the Month.   Chrystal is a night school student in the medical billing specialist program and is completing her last module before heading off to her externship. Staff and faculty say that she is focused and always has a smile on her face.

Instructor, Tonia Franks, had this to say about Chrystal:

Crystal is a very hard working student.  She generally makes Dean’s List or right at it every module of her program.  She works not only on class work, but also on extra workbooks in preparation for her certification exam that’s coming up.  Last module, Chrystal had one family member who was very ill, along with taking care of another family member during that time .  She still came in before class to make up a test so she wouldn’t be behind.  She is a very well put together lady. I truly enjoyed her.

Congratulations Chrystal on all your hard work.  We have no doubt that you will be successful in your future career!

Kristen Scott is no stranger to ups and downs in life. As a young wife and mother, she had always worked waiting tables to make ends meet. Despite all of her efforts, she and her family still struggled financially.

“All I’ve ever done is wait tables. It just wasn’t fulfilling.”

When asked why she made the decision to attend college at WTBC, her eyes welled up with tears and she shared the most incredible story.


“I’d been having money problems and was very stressed out. I had been praying about my situation faithfully but still nothing changed. Feeling like I was at the end of my rope, I called my best friend for advice. I remember saying to her, God doesn’t hear me anymore! My friend asked me to pray with her over the phone.”
