"I want to express my most sincere gratitude to the Foundation for making it possible for those like myself to continue their education. Being a single mother, attending college for my second degree, working full time in the emergency department, and experiencing a pandemic all at the same time has had many challenges to say the least. Being awarded this scholarship has taken one less worry off of my plate."
