Matthew Dooley

Matthew Dooley

Fall 2019-2020 cohort

My name is Matthew Dooley, and I am from a small town called Antwerp, in Northwest Ohio. I studied chemistry at Trine University in Angola, Indiana, and received my Associate of Science degree. I have a long history of funeral directing in my family, so it seemed fitting to end up at a school with an equally exciting history. I was very honored to be chosen as a lab assistant, and I look forward to the experiences it will bring. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have; I am always happy to help.

Fall 2019-2020 cohort

Hello, everyone! My name is Markie Mappes and I currently live in the surrounding area of Batesville, Indiana. Prior to coming to CCMS, I attended Ivy Tech Community College and had no experience in mortuary science. It is a privilege to be apart of the CCMS community and to be here everyday. Being able to be a lab assistant is an unmatched opportunity in my eyes, and I could not be more honored to be in the position that I am. If there is anything I can help with or any questions I can answer, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

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!
