100% of LCCC Class of 2012 Medical Laboratory Students pass State exam

For the third year in a row, the pass rate for Lorain County Community College students on the Medical Laboratory Technician exam was 100 percent.

All 10 of the LCCC students who took the exam this year passed with flying colors. The LCCC perfect pass rate exceeds the national pass rate of 78 percent. Additionally, LCCC students scored 17 percent higher than the national mean score.

“It is very gratifying to see the graduates perform so well on a national level, and it is a testament to the strong educational programs here at LCCC, as well as to the hard work the students put into their educational goals,” said James Daly, program director of LCCC’s Clinical Laboratory Science Technology and Phlebotomy programs.

Kimberly Koch, 25 of Elyria, said she was happy to pass the exam but wasn’t surprised, considering the intense training she underwent in the LCCC program.

“My reaction when I found out I passed my exam was equal parts relief and excitement,” she said. “Even though I was nervous to take the exam, when it was all said and done I felt like we all were taught more than enough to pass with flying colors.”

The small class sizes at LCCC made it easier to master the subject, said Kerry Cullen, 25 of Lakewood.

“I received a top notch education at LCCC,” Cullen said. “The small class size really allows each student to develop a relationship with each instructor.”
