Dream Award Winner: Becky Malivuk

Posted on: December 3, 2012

Making mistakes is easy. Fixing them is hard. But that’s exactly what Becky Malivuk did, and what earned her the 2011 Dream Award and a $2,500 scholarship from Everest College.

The fast life had caught up to Becky, leading to health problems, job problems, and even a run-in with the law. That’s when she decided it was time to make a change for the better put herself on the positive path to success. And the best way to do that was with an education.

Knowing that returning to school would ultimately create a better life, Malivuk enrolled in Everest College’s Medical Insurance Billing and Coding program. She quickly excelled in her classes and even became a student ambassador, offering her fellow classmates the support and encouragement they needed to succeed.

As Malivuk pursued her studies, her personal life began to turn around, too. Thanks to her excellent school attendance record and promising grades, a judge repealed all of Malivuk’s legal matters.

“Becky is truly deserving of this award,” said Catherine Killian, president of Everest College in Merrionette Park. Ill. “We are very proud she found a way to succeed.”
