– On Tuesday, February 28, 2012 the American Institute School of Wellness and Beauty
family came together to raise money for a student in need.
Mr. Ralph Lafontant a Medical Assisting student at American Institute School of Wellness and Beauty
has been borrowing a less than reliable bicycle to get to school each day since June 2011 to complete his program. “Ralph has been a model student with almost perfect attendance since June. In honor of completing his required in-school hours and now going on to complete his externship hours at a nearby physician’s office, together with his supportive class members and staff we were able to raise enough money to afford a brand new bicycle for Mr. Lafontant” stated Ms. Belinda Roy, Program Director for the daytime Medical Assistant program.
As a team the students, staff and faculty planned a luncheon on February 28th to raise the money for the bicycle purchase. For only $5 a plate the students, staff and faculty at the Margate campus ate a delicious lunch while giving back to one of their classmates.
American Institute School of Wellness and Beauty Campus President, Richard McCulloch
“I am always proud to be the Campus President at this School, but it is moments when the students, staff and faculty come together like this that I think I beam with pride. American Institute is really a place where people become family and this is just one of the perfect examples of that.”
