Published 7:30 am Sunday, June 4, 2017
Mr. and Mrs. Kizer Vinson Sifford Jr. of Salisbury would like for you to join them in congratulating their daughter La Toya Monique Sifford on earning her Master of Healthcare Administration degree, with distinction honors from Winston-Salem State University on Friday May 19, 2017. After graduating from North Rowan High School in 2010 La Toya went on to pursue her Bachelor of Science degree in Healthcare Management from Winston-Salem State University, which she obtained in May of 2015. In addition to being a multiple Dean’s list recipient while attending Winston-Salem State University, La Toya served as a Graduate Research Assistant to the Chair of the Healthcare Management Department, and as an enthusiastic and genuine Housing and Residence Life Resident Advisor for an all-female first year dormitory, known as Atkins Hall.
One of La Toya’s fondest memories took place during the 2015-2016 academic term when she was selected as the face of the Master of Healthcare Administration program. La Toya was pleasantly surprised when she was published on all of Winston-Salem State University’s School of Health Sciences’ national marketing materials, which included university sponsored billboards, signs, posters, and prints.
La Toya is currently a contributing member of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) and Winston-Salem State University’s Eta Chapter of Epsilon Tau Sigma Honor Society. This past spring, La Toya participated as a student representative in the 5th Annual Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity “MACHE Bowl” at Wake Forest University’s School of Medicine, in which her team took home the third place prize.
Presently, La Toya has accepted a management offer, working for one of the largest healthcare systems in North Carolina, which she plans to begin this summer. After successfully navigating the healthcare industry, La Toya intends to pursue her PhD in Leadership Studies or Healthcare Administration. We cannot wait to see what the future entails for this ambitious and determined emerging leader.
We are so very proud of you!
With love, Kizer, Lavidia, and Dexter Sifford.
