Brown Mackie College – St. Louis Grad Receives MAPCCS Student of the Year Award

Sha’Ron Patterson, who in 2015 earned an Associate of Applied Science in Surgical Technology from Brown Mackie College – St. Louis, recently received the Missouri Association of Private Career Colleges and Schools (MAPCCS) Student of the Year award. As the award winner, she attended the annual MAPCCS conference with the Brown Mackie College – St. Louis academic team.

Sha’Ron had to overcome many obstacles along her path to becoming a surgical technologist. She was homeless as a child and had to drop out of college for a period of time because of circumstances beyond her control. But she pushed forward and was able to finish her degree. Sha’Ron excelled when she returned, earning the President’s award for her final term. She also earned several honors awards while she was a student.

She completed her externships in December 2015 and sat for her certification exam soon afterward. Sha’Ron is now employed by Christian Hospital in North St. Louis.
