Leadership Award Recipient Returns to ANU to Continue His Education

Jun 30, 2015

Josh Parsons, a graduate of the business administration-management and accounting programs at the Danville, Kentucky Campus, was recently selected to receive the Leadership Award during the campus’s commencement ceremony held in May.

When he first enrolled at American National University, Josh, a U.S. Army veteran, was concerned about reintegrating into civilian life. However, he quickly proved himself to be a model student, serving as a federal work study student and tutor at the campus and graduating with high honors from his business administration-management and accounting programs.

Not one to rest on his laurels, Josh has reenrolled at ANU to continue his education in the medical assisting program. “I wanted to open up more job opportunities,” he explained.

“[I feel] accomplished. I've got something to look forward to in the future.”

With several terms yet to go in his program, a local medical clinic recently took notice of Josh’s business knowledge and medical skills, and he has been hired as a medical assistant. “I’ve already been hired on to a position in a medical facility,” he said proudly. “[I feel] accomplished. I’ve got something to look forward to in the future.”
