Meet Our Scholar: Nichole

Nichole, AZ - Elementary Education & Special Education

Nichole is a renewal scholar enrolled at Northern Arizona University and is working on her Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. She realized her dream when her child and a friend's child both with a disability were misguided within the public school system. With her son back in mainstream education, she now has the time and means to go back to school. Nichole hopes to help families to better their children's lives through support and education.

“By being a Jeannette Rankin Foundation scholarship recipient, I am one year closer to my dream of strengthening communities one family at a time. Through your generosity, my financial burden has been lessened and I am able to focus on my academic studies. I look forward to giving back to my community and helping other families to be successful.”
