Miranda Phillips, ITA Program
Miranda Phillips, resident of Treutlen County, was attending Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program when enrolled in the WIOA Program. She was unemployed due to being laid off from her previous employer. With the lack of income, the financial burden of completing school was overwhelming. She needed assistance from WIOA to help with tuition, supplies, and transportation costs of driving back and forth to clinicals. Miranda graduated with an Associate’s degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography in December 2022 with a 3.49 GPA and has since passed her state board exam. She has accepted a full time position at Fairview Park Hospital in Dublin, Ga. We are very proud of Miranda and her accomplishments.
Miranda shared her experience by saying, “I don’t know what I would have done without the WIOA program. It helped me by supplying the transportation stipends for gas back and forth to clinical sites and to school each week. They also paid for my state board exams and helped buy other necessary supplies I needed for my program. I will forever be grateful for WIOA”.
