Scholarship: Ashlyn is a recipient of the Eddie Kidd Scholarship.
What is your background? I am a determined young woman. I became interested in Weatherford College for their Physical Therapy Assistant program. My passion for this field stems from a children's rehab camp I attend every summer. Our goal should be to work to make the lives of others better and do something of lasting value.
What are your career plans? To attend Weatherford College for prerequisites into their physical therapy assistant program; followed by continuing education for my master’s/doctorate in physical therapy at a four year university.
Why did you choose Weatherford College? I come from a small town and feel Weatherford has numerous opportunities and offers a home-away-from home feel. The college is the perfect size for a beginner college student without being overwhelmed with the whole experience. I am also super excited to continue my education in the PT program.
How is your scholarship going to impact your life? I have spent the last months applying for many scholarships. My dad's a hard worker and my mom has been a stay-at-home mom, but funds will be limited. Receiving scholarships will release some of the stress to allow me to focus on school.
