Outstanding Graduate of the Year
About the ACHS Outstanding Graduate Award
Each year ACHS chooses a graduate to represent ACHS in the DEAC Annual Outstanding Graduate program. This program is designed to showcase the significant accomplishments of our graduates and specifically recognize the achievements of distance education students.
We encourage all graduates to consider applying to be the next ACHS Outstanding Graduate. Faculty and ACHS staff can also nominate graduates for this distinction.
2022 Outstanding Graduate Spotlight: Michael Ford
Michael Ford is a graduate of several certificate and diploma programs, as well as, our Associate of Applied Science in Complementary Alternative Medicine, Master of Science in Herbal Medicine, Master of Science in Aromatherapy and Master of Science in Integrative Health Sciences. Herbal medicine was his first step into the world of holistic health in the mid-90s with an herbalism apprenticeship, so it’s something he always came back to. The idea of plants as medicine captivated him as a child. He always knew he would end up in the healthcare industry, but he also knew it would be nothing traditional.
Michael was recently nominated and selected to represent ACHS as the DEAC 2022 Outstanding Graduate. He stated, “the success I’ve enjoyed is certainly related to all of the programs I have completed through ACHS.”
