Scholarship Recipient Testimonials:
"It has been my dream to become a nurse since I was a teenager. Receiving The Foundation nursing scholarship has given me the exciting opportunity to fulfill this dream.
Along with being a wife, I am a mother of four children. Going to school full time in the nursing program at Sheridan College has been challenging at times, but it has also been very rewarding. After completing my first year in the nursing program I became an LPN and worked full time at the hospital in the summer of 2010. This was a tremendous learning opportunity for me! And I really enjoyed being part of the nursing team in med/surg.
Upon graduating from nursing school and receiving my RN, I look forward to coming to work full time. Again, I'm grateful to The Foundation for the opportunity afforded to me."

"This scholarship means success for my educational goals in becoming an R.N. at Sheridan Memorial Hospital. Without the financial assistance, I would have had to increase my work hours while trying to manage a full-time student status, my family, and homework! This scholarship helped me achieve my goal, continue to be a good parent and find success in my new career. I am thankful that people in our community see the importance of helping others attain their goals. I hope to be able to pass on this generosity to someone else someday."

"As a wife and mother of two little boys, returning to school was one of the most exciting, yet worrisome decisions I have ever made. Receiving the Nursing Scholarship was fundamental to my family’s financial security and was very much appreciated by my entire family. Being able to use the money for expenses was wonderful and helped ease our burden. I am honored and enthusiastic to begin my R.N. career at Sheridan Memorial Hospital in the Emergency Department."
