Five years ago, I began studying to be an ultrasound technician at a small school called Dade Medical College. I had a background in medical technology from Cuba, and this school gave me the opportunity to not only continue my education, but also to find a good job in this country.
Despite its growth, I never felt like a number at Dade Medical. After graduation, it helped me find a job and, years later, after I received additional certifications, Ernesto Perez introduced me to other medical professionals and helped me move forward in my career.
I have had setbacks and have certainly made some mistakes, but Mr. Perez always gave me a chance, never asking anything in return.
I speak from personal experience but I know of many others whom Mr. Perez and Dade Medical College have helped. I am saddened by the comments and articles that have been published about him and the school because I’ve had only the best experience there.
There are many more people like me. We all consider Mr. Perez to be a light along our path, and I offer my unconditional support.
This letter expresses not just my feelings, but those of many others. We support and stand by Mr. Perez and Dade Medical College.
I joined the Dade Medical College family and I’m happy to say that, so many years later, I am still a valued member of that tight-knit group that has always supported me.
