Meet Kendra Cummings
Testimonial Head 2

“I worked for nearly 20 years as an event coordinator and a hotel manager when I decided I was ready for a change. I knew I wanted to get into the medical field, so I enrolled in the Respiratory Therapy program. It’s not easy raising four children, working part-time and attending college at the same time. But SMCC has given me a direct path to what I really want to do, and it’s financially feasible.
