Mother, Student, Medical Assistant

Daphne Glunt Daphne Glunt went from being an average student in high school to excelling at YTI. Glunt has maintained a 4.0 GPA and 100 percent attendance. This is a huge accomplishment for her, especially since she is going to school full-time, working at a retirement home part-time and raising a young daughter.

Glunt is enrolled in the Medical Assistant program at YTI, where she is learning many different aspects of the field. She is learning to help doctors perform diagnostic procedures, physical examinations and minor surgical procedures. In clinical, one of her favorite classes, because of its hands-on nature, she learns how to give shots, draw blood, take blood pressure and much more.

After graduation, Glunt hopes to work in the medical field, at an office branch of one of the local hospitals.
