Meridian Community College Physical Therapist Assistant Program Instructor Jenny Bryan explains the workings of knee ligaments to Lamar School student Paula Gast as Gast was visiting on campus as a part of a job shadowing activity. It was the first time for the high school senior to get a hands-on look at a career in physical therapy. In addition to a campus visit, Gast observed MCC students at clinical sites. “This has been a fun experience. Mrs. Bryan has shown me a lot in a short time,” Gast said. Wednesday’s event marked the fourth year Bryan has conducted job shadowing sessions. Gast, who has taken classes at MCC through dual enrollment, plans to pursue a degree in kinesiology. Bryan is also the academic coordinator of clinical education in the college’s PTA program.
