I'd like to thank the donors for providing the funds to make a scholarship available for me. I very much appreciate the generosity and receiving scholarship money will be a beneficial contribution to my education expenses.
After going through a divorce, I was left as a single mother of three children. I had been a stay-at-home mother for nearly 10 years, so needless to say I felt a little lost. I decided that education and a career would be key for me to be able to support myself and my three kids. I have always been interested in healthcare and am a caretaker by nature; so after researching programs, I began taking prerequisites for the radiology program. I am now just finishing up my first year in the program. Between my classes and clinical time at Providence St. Vincent's, the radiology program is very demanding, but I am thoroughly enjoying my education and am excited to see what my future holds. I look forward to a career as a radiology tech.
I feel honored and blessed to be a scholarship recipient. The help with my education expenses is much appreciated. I am very thankful to be receiving an education in radiography. My education will allow me to have a rewarding career, and to be able to provide for my children and I.
