Spotlight on Famia Thaxton

Famia Thaxton stays exceptionally busy since she is completing course requirements for both concentrations to receive an AAS degree in Office Systems Technology. She has always done well in business and computer courses but also has an interest in the medical field which is why she decided to complete course requirements in both the Business and Health Care Office Administrations concentrations in OST. In addition, she feels that completing courses in both concentrations will provide better job opportunities when she graduates.

Famia started attending Pellissippi State in the spring of 2001 and anticipates graduating in the fall of 2004. After graduation, she hopes to find a job that will allow her to continue her education toward a four-year degree. She currently serves as the student representative on the OST Advisory Board and has helped with Open House for Pellissippi State at the Magnolia campus. Famia also has a two-year daughter who demands a lot of her attention.

Congratulations to Famia for being choosen this semester's student spotlight!
