Success Stories
What's Your Story?

Tonya McMains is a true success story at Withlacoochee Technical College.  Realizing she needed to complete her high school education in order to achieve a better paying job, Tonya earned her GED® in 2014 at WTC.  She next enrolled in the Applied Academics for Adult Education program to increase her mathematics scores, which paid off with great results.  Tonya achieved the highest possible mathematics score on the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE).  She enrolled in the Medical Administrative Specialist program in January 2015. The hands-on, medical office specific training provided Tonya with the skills and knowledge she needed.  Her education included an internship opportunity with a local elementary school as well as a local pathology lab.  The internship at the lab has now turned into a potential career opportunity, and Tonya could not be any happier about her future.  She credits all the instructors she came in contact with at WTC for her success, saying each and every one of them was helpful and supportive.  Tonya is also a proud member of the National Technical Honor Society and has earned her Certified Medical Administrative Assistant industry certification.
