MCC Graduate to Be an Educator With a Mission

(Bradenton, Fla., Dec. 15, 2005) - Manatee Community College (MCC) graduating sophomore Aimee Randol has clearly defined goals for a career in education. She wants to work with middle school children who are struggling and make their school experience fulfilling and successful. Chosen as the student speaker for MCC's Winter graduation, Randol will share her vision in the ceremony that begins at 7 p.m., Friday, Dec. 16, in Neel Performing Arts Center at MCC Bradenton.

Graduating summa cum laude, Randol is well prepared for her mission. She plans to earn a bachelor's degree in special education at the University of South Florida. After that, she hopes to get a master's degree as a curriculum specialist and a doctorate in educational psychology.

While working at a small private school, Randol saw middle school students at a crossroads. She wants to positively influence the entire learning environment for such students through curriculum assessment development, socio-psychological training and refined leadership skills.

Randol, 39 and a Venice resident, is the mother of three and her 19-year-old son, Ian, also is taking classes at MCC Venice.
