Kayla Wright started this petition to Dean of Students and

Summer Sheppard is an amazing person and like all of us has adapted to her situations to over come many obstacles in her way to be as successful as possible in this program. We have all witnessed her significant growth as a person and as a physical therapist assistant student while attending this program. However, she did not score high enough to pass the online pathology class - by .4 of a point to be exact. This program encompasses a large amount of rigorous course work in such a short amount of time and the students are expected to be successful. Most of us are but not without personal hardship and struggles along the way. To work so diligently as Summer has and still be told its not enough is discerning. This petition is asking for there to be an alternative way for her to continue the program. May it be either

1. Taking half of a point from all of our [current students'] pathology tests to make up for the point that she is lacking

2. Using the practice board tests as an extra credit grade

3. Taking into account her professional growth within the program and using it as a grade within the rubric

To come this far is a great achievement but to be dropped just like that because of missing .4 of a point in just one class is a devastation. To not take into account how much time, dedication and growth she has put into this program would be neglectful on the part of the grader and as a whole a failure within the Trident Technical College's health science grading system. Losing Summer from the Physical Therapist Assistant program would not only be a loss to the program but also a loss in how much she would add to the Physical Therapist Assistant career in itself.
