Fall 2020-2021 cohort

My name is Samuel Bianchi and I am from Marion, Ohio. I finished my prerequisites with Terra State Community College and I have had about 2 years of funeral home experience before coming to CCMS. I decided to pursue this career because I have always appreciated the funeral directors that have helped my family. I am beyond grateful to have been selected as a lab assistant. Feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Hello! My name is MaCauley Slone, I am originally from the small town of Fostoria in Northwest Ohio. I attended Terra State Community College before transferring to CCMS. I have not had any funeral home experience prior to coming to here so the priviledge of being a lab assistant is amazing. If you have any questions or need help with anything feel free to reach out. I am more than happy to help!
