Scholar Stories



Dena is achieving her goal of becoming a Registered Nurse through a Working Nurse Program. She hopes to eventually earn a Master’s degree in Community/Public Health so she can one day teach others. Dena says the JRF scholarship funds give her the ability to focus on her studies rather than hunting for additional work to pay for school. “Those extra hours of study allowed me to really learn and solidify important practical material I need as a nurse.” Dena maintains a high GPA despite the growing complexity of her courses.
