Student Testimonials

Mrs. Loy was so sweet and understanding of everyone’s situation from what I understood and saw. She really helped me grasp information faster than I thought I could. I took this class to give me a boost when applying for nursing school in January and to get out of retail! Thanks Mrs. Loy ❤️
