Congratulations to Louis Logan, II for receiving the Missouri Regional Breaking Traditions Award for MACC presented by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
The Breaking Traditions Awards recognize outstanding students in nontraditional career programs (a student in a career field that is least represented by their gender). He was nominated by his professor, Carisa Atkins.
One area that Carisa Atkins noted in her nomination letter was her pride in seeing him take the time during his clinical setting hours with the patients. “In the clinical setting, he spent hours just sitting and talking with the veterans that wanted to share their stories with him. He quickly became confident in his clinical performance and skills. He is able to connect with clients in a way that is caring and compassionate.”
Louis plans to continue his education after completing his Associate Degree Nursing Program at MACC, but for now, he is taking his program ‘one semester at a time.’
