Cox College Student Ambassador – Mercedes Lair

Cox College’s ambassadors are student leaders who provide mentorship, foster community enrichment, and help advance the goals of our organization. Ambassadors often assist with our alumni dinner, commencement, and other recruitment events and volunteer opportunities.


Hello, my name is Mercedes Lair. I am one of the Student Ambassadors for the Medical Assisting Program at Cox College. I got my degree as a graphic designer, but decided to go back to school to become a Registered Medical Assistant (RMA). I’m currently working as a Patient Representative where I love working with patients, but found myself wanting to have a more “hands-on” career in the medical field . In my spare time, I love spending time with my family including my wonderful little two year old son. We like playing at the park looking for Pokemon. I also love video games and reading books.
