Stevens-Henager College Celebrates 70 New Graduates Joining the Ogden Workforce
Posted By Manda Perkins on May 22, 2017
OGDEN—Stevens-Henager College's West Haven (Ogden) campus awarded 70 associate's and bachelor's degrees during the 2016-2017 academic year. In celebration of the accomplishments of those graduates, a commencement ceremony will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 25, at Weber State University's Austad Auditorium.
One of the graduating students is Sabel Mangum, who earned an Associate of Occupational Studies in Surgical Technology. While in school, she was also working and raising a child. Mangum has already passed the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) exam and is working at the Spring Creek Surgical Center.
“Stevens-Henager College gave me the personal attention I needed to understand the material,” Mangum said. “Having a small class size gave me the opportunity to work more closely with my classmates and make personal attachments with them. We all pushed and helped one another. You just don't get that personal connection at the larger universities.”
Mangum said the value of teamwork is one of the important lessons she learned at Stevens-Henager College.
“That's how the medical field is,” she said. “Nobody is a lone wolf—you work as a team because that's what's needed to do your job.”
