Student Highlight – Mindy Dearing

mindyWhile taking her niece, Jasmine, to visit PIHT for a career day, Mindy decided to go along on the school tour. Mindy has always had a huge interest in returning to school which resurfaced after touring the school and listening to the Admission Representative, Katrina, present information on the programs. It was then that Mindy knew PIHT was perfect for not only her niece, but herself as well.


Mindy chose the Medical Assisting program because she always had a passion for helping those in need and an 18 month program with many certification options appealed to her.  She knew starting here would help her reach her goal of becoming a Registered Nurse


She explains that her favorite aspect of attending PIHT is the peaceful and friendly atmosphere.  She says, “All of the teachers and staff are so helpful and truly care and my peers have the same interest as me.”


Mindy’s biggest supporter is her mother, her two daughters, and her niece.  Mindy shares, “My mother gives me the courage to continue my dream and living my dream will then support my family and the life I am choosing for our future.”  Mindy also finds support from all of her teachers, her friends, and fellow peers who have kept her humble and motivated throughout her time at PIHT. 


She would like to personally thank her mother, Catherine Dearing, for never giving up on her and for always reassuring her that she can do this! In addition, she wants to thank her entire family, friends, and all the teachers and staff who have been there for her at her worst and continue to be there for her. 


When asked about her future plans Mindy said that she knows she was meant to be in the medical field and plans to continue her education and obtain a career in her field.
