Harleyann, 17, attends Queen Creek High School and is enrolled in the Nursing Assistant program at EVIT’s East Campus.
Q: Why did you decide to enroll at EVIT?
A: I wanted to get a jump-start on my career ... and I thought, “Why spend money on it when I can get it (at EVIT) free?”
Q: What’s your ultimate goal?
A: I want to get a BSN in nursing and be a registered nurse in an ER. I’m going to go to CAC (Central Arizona College) and then transfer to Grand Canyon University.
Q: What do you like about EVIT?
A: The environment. It’s smaller at the East Campus and we’re really close-knit. It’s not like my high school. Everyone wants to be here.
Q: What do you do in your spare time when you’re not in school?
A: I teach kids to swim at Aqua Tots.
Q: Tell me about your family. Do you have siblings?
A: I have three younger brothers. The 13-year-old wants to go to EVIT’s EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) program.
EVIT is the real prep school for students with a passion – such as radio, hair styling, cars, fashion, welding, health – and the focus and drive to turn that passion into a career. We learn with purpose and through practice. We imagine, create, and trouble-shoot. We are the builders, the artists, the caregivers, the engineers, the protectors.
We are EVIT.
