General Information About Ross Medical Education Center-Grand Rapids
The first activities of Ross Education initially began in 1969, when J. M. Ross opened a school under the name Learning Foundations. The school was located in Flint, Michigan, and it provided after-school academic instruction to kindergarten through twelfth grade students. Between 1969 and 1971, Mr. Ross opened six additional schools under the same name. In 1971, the name of the company was changed to Ross Learning, Inc., and the focus of the company shifted to providing prevocational and vocational training services to adults. In 1973, Ross Learning, Inc. was purchased by Howard J. Hulsman, and the organization began its evolution into career training centers. In 2004, Mr. Hulsman sold Ross Learning, Inc., to three officers of the corporation - Christine Ossenmacher, Paul Mitchell and Richard Lockman. Ross Education, LLC purchased the assets in 2005. Today, Ross Medical Education Centers are allied health schools located throughout communities in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. All are accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools. Each facility operates independently. Today, the officers of Ross Education, LLC are: Paul Mitchell - President, CEO John Higgins - Vice President, Secretary Brian Demkowicz - Vice President Anthony Iaquinto - CFO, Treasurer
