MACC, a look into the future for students. The Career Center has helped me create a plan for the future and has helped me learn real life skills to prepare me. I will forever appreciate my time at the MACC. - Nicole
A lot of people ask what my favorite thing about health science is. They expect me to say something about getting my CNA or learning about vitals. While all those things are great, my answer to that question will always be about the support and the love I’ve gotten from my teachers and class at health science. They have made me realize I can do anything I set my mind to and are always pushing me to do the best I can. - Paige
I really like how the MACC Health Science class is preparing me for my career after high school. - Anonymous
The people I’ve met and the things I’ve learned and accomplished in this class alone is unreal. I’m really excited to have began my future here. I wasn’t too sure about what I wanted to completely do with my future, but I definitely think this gave me a pretty good idea. - Trisha
