I wanted an experience that was small and close to home before going off to a university.
I didn’t think I’d have the opportunity to go to college, so receiving a scholarship
means the world. It was a big financial relief, and to realize others see success
in me is impactful.

I chose WC because it was close and I didn’t have to spend a lot of money at a larger
school where I might not have been as confident. Weatherford has been a good steppingstone
into college. It's helped me prepare for the future.
Since I was 4 years old, I knew I wanted to do something in the healthcare field.
I feel nursing is my calling. But I didn’t know how I would be able to go to college.
With a scholarship I don’t have to worry about trying to work and do school, I can
focus on my studies. All of my nursing instructors have made a huge impact on my education.
I’ve learned so much.
