Instructor Cynthia Acevedo says she remembers when Parlier High Schools Medical Pathways Program was just starting.
“The beginning of the program was small cohorts, we only had a couple of students the very first year,” said Acevedo.
Now with 200 students participating in the program, the need for more space is greater than ever before.
“The space is very limited,” said Medical Assistant Instructor Nichole Gallagher. “As you can see, we’ve got to do our lecture, plus all of our skills in this one small area.”
Thanks to a state grant, Parlier High School is building a $3.2 million medical facility on its campus for students eager to pursue the medical field.
“We always talk about a legacy to leave behind,” said
