Adam Cook '18
From a young age Adam was always fascinated by the science of the human body. For as long as he can remember he wanted to pursue some sort of career in medicine. It was during his senior of high school at Greater Beckley Christian, that he went on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic which in result allowed him to focus on pursuing medical school. However, to make it to medical school, Adam knew he needed a firm undergraduate education for his foundation. He loved the class sizes at Concord University as well as the proximity to his hometown of Bradley, WV. Adam was aware of Concord’s excellent reputation for pre-requisite classes for medical school and four years later, he earned his Bachelor of Science and graduated Cum Laude. Adam is now in medical school pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor. Adam was aware of Concord’s excellent reputation for pre-requisite classes for medical school. It Starts With You.

Kasey is a third-generation Mountain Lion and majoring in Biology Pre-Physical Therapy. When she came to Concord, it felt like home. Her foundation for inspiration comes from her supportive family that has always encouraged her to pursue her dreams. Kasey's grandmother fought a battle with cancer for 16 years, and during that time Kasey grew an interest for science and how amazing the human body can be. Her passion began in sophomore year of high school when she was injured playing softball. After intense physical therapy, Kasey returned to the sport that she loved. She then had the aspiration to touch lives and give others the gift of healing. Kasey feels that Concord provides a high quality education with a strong biology program. Once she gets her degree, that will lay the foundation that will allow her to pursue a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.
