Business Administration Student Highlight – Amanda Hayhurst


Amanda HayhurstWhy did I choose to come to Ohio Valley College of Technology?

 I graduated high school in 2013 and I knew I wanted to further my education at Ohio Valley College of Technology because of the great things I heard about the college from other students and graduates. Many things made me choose to further my education here like the small class sizes, hands-on training and sixteen month programs. When you walk into the classroom and the professors greet you with “Good Morning,” it really makes you feel like you’re not just another face in the crowd. Secondly, the school is in the perfect location. OVCT is only a 15 minute drive from my house, which made it possible to keep my job and still be able to live at home.


Why did you choose your program?

 I decided in high school that I wanted to go to college for business. My high school offered many business courses, which helped me get my foot in the door. I hope to one day open my own real estate office, and a Business Administration degree would help me manage my future business.


What’s your favorite part of attending the school so far?

 My favorite part about attending OVCT so far is that throughout the Business Administration program I have been with the same people in every module. We have all became friends and if it wasn’t for attending school here I would have never met these wonderful people.


Who is your biggest supporter?

 It is a tough race in my family to decide who my biggest supporter is, so I have four. My father and mother would probably be in the lead taking the spots for first and second. Once I was born my parents started saving money for me to attend college after high school. They have supported me through the whole process and they were the reason I chose OVCT. The runners up for third and fourth would be my brother and fiancé. They help me with any problem and they are all such a great support system.


Do you have anyone you want to thank? 

I would like to thank my first accounting instructor Mrs. Watkins. She worked very hard making sure that every student understood the material we were learning no matter how long it took. If it wasn’t for Mrs. Watkins, accounting would be so much harder. She was an excellent teacher!
