“Since 1995, we have been changing lives through education. It is so amazing to know that we have not only changed the lives of 10,000 students, but also the lives of their children. We have added 10,000 skilled workers to our community and are excited to continue educating so many more!” said Dr. Raye Mahlberg, President of Community HigherEd.

Cassie Breshears is not only the 10,000th Community HigherEd graduate, but she is also a “red rober.” “Red robers” are students who excel in their programs and go above and beyond to maintain excellence throughout the year. These students wear red robes at graduation to signify their accomplishments. Other students graduate with black robes. To be able to obtain this honor, a student must never be late or miss a single day of class while maintaining an A average.

“It was wonderful to celebrate with our Medical Assistant graduate, Cassie Breshears, as she became the 10,000th graduate from Community HigherEd! I am thrilled to work with the dedicated education specialists here at CHE and to witness the hard work and dedication of our students. These 10,000 graduates have made a huge impact in the Tulsa community. Congratulations Cassie and Community HigherEd! Here’s to 10,000 more!” said Julie Benson, Community Care College Medical Assistant Department Head.
