Janet Mitchell- Sullivan Lexington Alum of the Month
Janet Mitchell was selected as Alum of the Month from Sullivan University's Lexington campus. She said it was an exciting honor to have been chosen.
Janet completed her degree in Paralegal Studies in 2005. She said, "I have always had a strong sense of justice and fairness. I absolutely love everything about law. I love helping clients, meeting deadlines, thus the Paralegal Studies degree was not a hard choice! At Sullivan I enjoyed the classes, instructors, and all of the activities that were provided. I especially enjoyed my participation in the Student Membership with the Greater Lexington Paralegal Association."
Janet indicated that Sullivan helped prepare her for her career with the strong curriculum of study. "I was able to quickly utilize my daily tasks on my job from the classes that were taught," she said.
Janet is currently the Litigation Paralegal in the Federal Black Lung Department at Jackson Kelly PLLC. She plans to eventually go back to school to finish her bachelors degree and possibly pursue further education in the law field.
Her advice to students is: "Study hard, earn good grades, and use all of the resources available that Sullivan has to offer. I would also suggest strongly that with the Paralegal Studies that you complete the bachelor of science degree. The more education you have in the field, the easier it will be to find a job.
