(Marion, OH) Marion Technical College’s student ambassadors are taking over the college’s Instagram feed! As you will see them around the Marion Campus and on Instagram, we wanted to introduce them. (They will sign their posts with their initials.)
Today, meet nursing student Misty Organ, an experienced student ambassador in her own words:
Hi! My name is Misty. I am originally from Marion, but I spent a few years in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. My most important life experience by far has been when I became a mom to my beautiful daughter, Emma. She continues remind me daily to focus on what is truly important and to never take life too seriously.
One weird thing I can share about myself is that my daughter and I both share a love for all creatures; we have saved spiders and other critters from certain doom. My daughter and I visited the Franklin Park Conservatory for Mother’s Day and we had the opportunity to hold a tarantula, and we were thrilled to do so.
I chose MTC because my mom graduated from the nursing program and they have one of the best nursing programs in the state of Ohio. MTC’s tuition costs are affordable and it is close to home. My current career goal is to obtain my bachelor’s degree in nursing and to specialize in pediatric nursing.
I have been blessed with many amazing opportunities while attending MTC, but by far the people I have met while attending and serving as a student ambassador have been the greatest gift. I feel honored to be an MTC Student Ambassador and look forward to many more opportunities to share my experience with fellow students as well as the Marion community. I feel honored to be attending such an outstanding college. I would tell anyone who is considering attending MTC not to hesitate. If I had the chance to choose again, I would make the same choice!

In the group photo, you can see Misty with several other student ambassadors after they assisted with New Student Orientation. Others were busy at their other jobs that day, but you will meet them in MTC’s blog and on our Instagram account. We hope you enjoy getting to know these students and can see MTC through their eyes!
